Summer time and it's great to see art galleries and groups putting on exhibits with good attendence and plenty of art sales! Artists either used the time of pandemic isolation to delve deeper into art making or may have found it impossible to create. Fortunately, I fell into the first group, at least for a good while. I hate not being able to access one's creative ability, that frustrating hole called the "creative block". With an abundance of curiosity and no expectations, I experimented with materials sent to me by friends and aquaintences...thank you Krista and Jay! I've always had a thing for texture and sculpture, so assemblages and mixed media are always part of my metier. At the cottage, the ocean and sky capture my eye (and heart) and a large series of seascapes were borne. I use oils on wood panels (made by Twisted Doorbell in Bridgetown) and paint how the views make me feel. Hoping that the viewer sees and senses it.
Some of these seascapes can be seen and purchased at The Flying Apron in Summerville until the end of August and at the Marina in Guysborough as part of the Artworks East Group until the Labour Day weekend. Check out my gallery page to see where else you can find my artwork. I am thankful to all my galleries (xoxoxoxo) and other venues to share my art. You are also welcome to visit my summer studio in Fall River "The Hildegard" by appointment. Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
Love & Light, AXO
