MARKS OF REPAIR, an online exhibition on view at THE EXHIBIT. The selection of thirty paintings was to be be installed in the spacious Artspace Buffalo Gallery. Due to necessary pandemic restrictions, the challenge of moving my presentation of work onto social media and virtual viewing room seemed to be a fair price in a world calling out for a season of repair. The actual process of painting often involves some ruin and repair on the way to pushing forward to finished work. I view self-expression and all kinds of art experience as potentially medicinal (healing). Gestures, ideas, and marks become a kind of dance in the task of arranging and layering materials, color, texture in order to dialogue with my time and place. The works are parts of a related whole. For several decades, I have painted on paper, canvas or wood, often including elements of textiles or paper collage. The painter, Georgia O'Keefe signed her letters "from the faraway nearby." This idea reminds me of the way painting is a measure of physical and psychic geography between self and other. PLEASE NOTE: dimensions are listed as "cm," but I have entered my dimensions in inches. The work is listed on this online viewing room are listed as "not for sale." However, most of the work is available for purchase, but not all works are available to be shipped. I prefer to handle this privately. Contact me at [email protected] Thanks for looking...Pat
