|Four paintings from the Air series framed and ready for David Joyce Gallery.|
The Mayor's Art Show came down last month and I have two more shows before the end of the year. Four small paintings have been chosen for a group show at the David Joyce Gallery. These four are from a new series called Air. The title of the show is Taking Flight: a Visual Voyage. I had a twist on the concept that I hoped would fit. It did! The Fire Season series dealt with elemental forces. When Henry and I began learning about Robert Boyle's experiments with the vacuum and the bell jar, I began a journey of thought that inspired this new series. It is a fascinating project for me. The more I explore, the more questions emerge. My initial inspiration comes from the idea that Air is a complicated substance but invisible. There are connections to breath and spirit, nature and weather and also environmental issues. I would love to hear your thoughts.
