I am thrilled to announce a new art exhibit – Spark of Creation – to be held in August at the Oakeside Bloomfield Cultural Center in Bloomfield NJ. This will be my second exhibit at Oakeside, but my first show of original paintings.
Spark of Creation is a series of black and white abstract paintings that speak to that single moment of creation when one drop of paint reaches the canvas and spreads outwards in undulations of expression and creativity – explosive, sometimes directionless, but always intense.
I finished the entire series – 18 paintings of varying sizes – in a a few short months. For me the collection serves as a metaphor for both the inner and outward universe that exists for each of us – expanding, contracting and ever changing.
The exhibit will run from Aug. 1 through Aug. 31 and can be viewed Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Evening viewings by appointment only.
An opening reception will be held Thursday, August 13th from 7:30-9:30 p.m. at Oakeside where I get to meet and greet with the public. Stop by and enjoy the art along with some light refreshments.
In August of 2013 at Oakeside, I presented a series of black & white photographs of stone angels called “Never Alone.”
