September 10 – October 17, 2009

On single, diptych and triptych canvases ranging from three to four feet square, the artist skillfully blends open, evanescent spaces with gutsy, tactile passages celebrating the materiality of paint itself. In these visceral works, washes of acrylic paint puddle and pool, thick splashes and blobs might impose themselves, or break apart and scatter like clouds. Throughout her investigations, the artist is guided by her fascination with the dual nature of the painted surface: repository of matter and metaphor for space.
