For the past year artists around the studio have been looking at art as an adventure into unknown territory, working with methods of abstraction and listening to their paintings for the symbols which have emerged in their work as a language they may speak with intention. Each of them has taken the method and made it their own "dialect".
Art is a process of discovery and expression and it is my joy to see studio artists take the risks of not having to produce a finished product but remain involved in and exploring an ever changing process that is truly the art behind the work. At the same time I am reminded it's not work, far from it, it's fun, really fun, when you no longer think of it as work.
I invite you to step beyond being "done" with your work and explore the process of being willing, receptive, interpretive, appreciative and fully immersed in the studio method language of expressive art.
