OF the EARTH
My exhibit of landscape paintings, OF the EARTH is on display at MS Rezny Studio/Gallery during the month of August, 2013. MS Rezny Studio/Gallery is located at 903 Manchester Street, Lexington, KY, in the Distillery District. Gallery hours are 11 am - 4 pm, Tuesday through Friday and noon to 3 pm on Saturday. There is a mix of media represented in this exhibit: acrylic, watercolor and pastel, and (of course!) mixed media. I will be in the gallery on Saturdays, come see me!
To give you a taste of what my work is about, I will include my Artist's Statement here:
Spending time outdoors is essential to who I am as an artist. In fact, it was necessary for me to take a walk so that I might gather some thoughts for this artist's statement. While walking, I naturally observed that most of my images for painting are collected on such walks. (I passed several redbud trees with dark leaves of deep red and green. When I turned around for another look, the wind has exposed a delicious purple underside.) The Earth provides me with my artistic inspiration as well as serving as an antidote to some of our man-made problems. Still, there is a sweet intersection between nature and human influence that fuels my passion. This sweet spot can be found at my favorite places, such as: Blue Licks State Park, the Arboretum, the Henry Clay Estate and Lake Carnico. I hope that these paintings allow for an interval of enjoyment for the beauty that surrounds us.
Coming up next, I am going to talk about the sweet intersection between nature and human influence.
