Witness Trees, 2019

Oil on canvas

36 x 36"

Value: $1900

Even though recognizable as trees, I consider the birch works to be process oriented abstractions. Every painting or drawing in this series is an opportunity to be experimental, even playful, as I lay down the paint or mixed-media materials on canvas, paper, glass, or Mylar. With figurative elements, and dense repetitions, these are the forests of childhood fairytales, where one is hopelessly lost. And yet there remains a suggestion of the endless continuity and power of renewal in nature.

*This piece will be available for fair market value.

Artist Bio:

As a multi-faceted feminist artist, my first commitment is to painting other women, the human face, and figure. Whether working with descriptive images or with the abstract use of materials, I approach all my subjects directly and with abandon. I work furiously at the intersection of disciplined control and randomized instinct.
Additionally, in my quest to discover and reveal what is most emotionally and aesthetically essential, the observational drawing aspect of these images is created with my non-dominant left hand.
