DESCRIPTION

Solo exhibition of abstract expressionist paintings that endeavors to make tangible the most intangible aspect of people we all know--their personalities. The non-figurative, abstract paintings explore a vast variety of stereo-types and colorful characters you can find in most town & country settings, presenting them in pure vibrant colors, primarily in oil on architectural supports, linen on panel, and medium to XL canvases, that all seem to question "what is your type?" Utilizing colors, values, textures, fluid and and sculpted oil compositions, the artist works to effectively create pictures of her subjects' souls while avoiding reference to recognizable images that might provide easy clues. Make a game of it by trying to figure out the type each piece illustrates,--without peeking at the title--and see how many you can correctly guess!

The artist, as always, has integrated a limited number of new "Liquid Abstracts," her signature paintings for this show.
