When it Rains & Rains: Album, Effigies, or Instructions
The main focus of my exhibit is an installation of forty-two 18x24 mixed media paintings entitled Picture Album: A Coping Mechanism, situated in a grid format. The pieces are layered, textured, and meticulously painted. They are dedicated to two people very close to me, who are both dealing with serious illnesses. A portion of the proceeds will go to a charity of their choice. In keeping with my yearly offering of affordable art for all, these pieces will be priced accordingly.
My show will also include a series of additional larger pieces that are an exploration of sanity, identity, family roles, and heredity. On display will be six somewhat interactive, mirrored, faceless images, two birthday girl paintings, a painting of a severed cat with nine lives, and many other oddities. The entire show is an exploration on how people cope with loss, change, and life.
I am not quite finished with all my pieces! I have been sooooo busy with other aspects of my life. I am working and working to finish, and I always DO finish....but I am quite nervous. :) I hope to see you all there, with all of my artwork finished and present. Take care and have a wonderful weekend!
