I created this grid of nine, 6 x 6 inch paintings for the "Between Here and There" exhibition, which opens tomorrow at the Artstream Studios Gallery in Dover, NH. Reflecting back to my 30 day project, it's interesting to see how some of those pieces fit together unintentionally. I chose to continue working on 6 x 6 inch panels and develop a cohesive grouping that could be sold together or each individually.
On the Sanctuary Trail #1-9 is about my exploration and discovery on the hiking trails in Cinque Terre, Italy. Each panel is a memory of the landscape and nature that standout in my imagination. The textures and colors of the land, the calming sea, and rolling countryside. Through the use of my own photography, historical documents, and found objects I created these multilayered pieces that describe my meaningful experience.
On the Sanctuary Trail, along with four other new works will be on display at Artstream Studios from April 1 through May 30. The show also includes encaustic work of the very talented Bridgette Guerzon Mills, Melissa Hall, and Linda Wein. Our work will also be available to purchase on their online shop! As soon as the link is provided I will send an update. :)
