Am very excited to be presenting a new body of work in the exhibit "Ever Present: Clay Works and Paintings" at Swoon Fine Art on June 1st. Just as thrilled to be paired with masterful clay artist, Carol Smeraldo. Can't wait to see our work on show together!
These paintings are a bit of a departure for me - different palette, slightly different style. I allowed myself a greater freedom, and spontaneity played an even stronger role than usual. The resulting work surprised me in its intimacy.
There is a softness to many of the paintings which feels new to me, and a depth that seems to pull me inward. Colours are a bit more complex and movement most often flows on the vertical. Any more personal response to the work is for each who sees or feels a connection, ever present in the moment. Hope to see you for the Opening, June 1st!
