These four pieces were shown at The Edge Center for the Arts Gallery along with a handful of other artists' work.
All of these are part of the North Shore Series and they focus on color, space, and how they interact with each other.
These pieces were made with a combination of spray paint, oil, and printmaking techniques. Each painting is 18" x 18" on wood panel.
I tried to capture the horizon line and interpret them in different ways by including blocks representative of land, ships, and piers. I enjoy omitting defining characteristics from this work so the viewer can explore their imagination to create their own story of interpretation of the piece.
It was a lot of fun meeting with the other artists to talk about their process and learn about why they do what they do. I received great advice from an artist who has lived in every state in the United States, and I also learned how to appreciate art a little more. I will admit, I do not understand photography and it is my least favorite medium. However, one photographer I met there was telling me the stories behind her work and after listening to them, I valued her work even more and grew to understand photography at a deeper level. I still have a lot to learn about it, though.
