The show/exhibtion calender for 2010 is filling up fast. Deb and I have a full slate for spring already so I am going through and cataloging some of my older work that I have never digitally captured.
This very expressionistic painting "Angels and Such" is just such a piece. I have always liked this painting. I did this back in the 90's and have only shown it outside our own gallery a couple of times. I expect to bring it out for one of the upcomming shows and thought now is the time to take the glass off and clean it up. Might as well digitally record while the glass is off.
Although these images are more representational than most of the work we post here, there is an expressive quality to them. The viewer can sense the manner that she moves the pen on the paper. A physical act. An expressive act.
In her words - Colleeen Blackard
"My art is meant to share my experience of the infinite nature of the universe. I use the unique language of intertwining ballpoint pen circles and infinity signs to shape light with darkness. My hand moves intuitively when applying marks, but I keep my eyes open to forms I wish to convey. Through this process, I create an active relationship between the infinitely small world of intimate details, the infinitely large world of distant forms, and you, the viewer."
