Happy to report that Striped Diamonds is finished! This painting was created to accompany Deco Diamonds. A triptych is in the works, so stay tuned for the third painting in this series.
Currently, I have 20 works (paintings, screen prints, and collages) on view at the Southeastern Louisiana University Contemporary Art Gallery, in an exhibition entitled, A Room of Her Own. The exhibition is on view through November 2, 2012. What a beautiful space! I love the sky lights!
Here’s a sneak peak of the painting I’ve been working on in my home studio. Entitled Striped Diamonds (oil on canvas, 60″ x 36″), it’s meant to be a compliment to Deco Diamonds.
Southwestern Medallion and Zig Zag Rug is currently on view through the end of this month in the group exhibition entitled Narrative Fragments, at Quidley & Company in Boston, MA. Narrative art attempts to tell a story, whether true or fictitious. Much of Western art has been narrative, depicting stories from religion, myth, history and literature. We are familiar with the idea that a story should have a beginning, middle and end. The crucial dilemma for artists is how to convey complex figurative works that depict grand story arcs, while compressing a multitude of thoughts, nuance, ideas and emotions into a static singular image.
Narrative Fragments includes approximately 30 paintings by 22 artists who convey narrative content in their work through a synthesis of representational subject matter and the materiality and application of their medium. To view the exhibition catalogue, click here.
