2021 NEWEST SERIES: "HEART OF THE COSMOS"
In coming back to painting after a few years of maternity leave, in the midst of this pandemic, I experienced a beautiful sort of confluence in those nocturnal hours of solitude – being by myself, only for myself, connecting, reflecting. All the various voices and awareness engaged to create harmony on canvas – something new, yet also familiar, like a feeling of home. The more immersed I became, the deeper I became attuned.
The spirit of these new paintings is a visual conversation of forms and lines that fluctuate between organic, fluid movement and controlled intentions. I use high flow acrylics, acrylic ink and water to express the echoing of contours, of contradicting movements and marks. Shapes are created by puddles of color drying over time; lines extend to accentuate the weather of emotions and thoughts conveyed through an accumulation of these marks.
“Heart of the Cosmos” is a series which calls for you to experience connection in these moments of deeply felt flow. It is currently being exhibited at Sip @ C St. Flats in Laurel, MD from August 1 - September 4, 2021. Opening night is August 13th from 5-7 PM with a live demo and coffee bar.
