The presentation includes 10 new paintings produced over the past 30 months during the pandemic. The new paintings were created with the artist’s novel process as she describes in the statement bellow. The compositions are abstract while the imagery is from the natural world and specifically from readymade fabrics and lace mass produced for women’s clothing and draperies. Each painting has many layers of imagery and paint that is then sanded to reveal colors and patterns below. Looking closer reveals floral and insect motifs bringing nature into the patterning and overall psychedelic feel as well as designs from iconic fashion designers.
