Linda Klein: "Traction"


I began this series of paintings with the intention of exploring color and shape. But nature prodded me to wake up to its living presence and transform the work into a story of revival.

The result is 24 small paintings in acrylic based on the life and death of a particular plant. The dead plant revived itself and returned to the living, causing me to see this as a celebration of its resilience. 

My process can be seen through the development of the series. I began tightly rendering what I saw, and, as I progressed, I became less restrained, freer, and more experimental. Color, or example, is fanciful, with little relation to the subject. Some of the pieces are based on photos taken of the plant, but most are painted directly from observation.

The subject has recurred in much of my work since the 1990s: renewal, resurrection and reawakening. Only the object has changed, whether a dried up potato, my grandma, or this plant.

 

 

 

 



 

Patty Adams: "Hubbub"


Patty Adams is an abstract painter with no one style but is inclusive of many painting styles.  She engages the viewer with incongruities, such as playfulness and gravitas, chaos and order, and reticence and bombast. Her paintings hover on the edge of design, but use the tension of that order to break out into the rich and ambiguous space of abstract painting.
