An Exhibit of Texture
January through February, 2013
About the Show
Moving paint around on canvas was my form of therapy after being diagnosed with cancer, when words could not articulate what happened within my body. The pain after my surgery was so incredible that dripping drops of paint onto a canvas, repeatedly, for hours, was the only thing that kept my mind focused and free.
For the first three years, almost all of my paintings contained circles. I then moved on to working the flow and rhythm of my pieces. Within the past few years my focus switched to textures, which elevated them to another dimension, figuratively and literally. Most start with a base of flowers, circles, or lines and reveal themselves through an unimagined birth.
These paintings were made with love and whimsy.
The Voices Art Gallery is offered by the Cancer Center Art Therapy Program and is made possible by gifts to the Helen and Sonya Fund and the Cancer Center Art Therapy Program. Program supplies are generously supported by the Robert Bruce Dunlap Memorial Fund.
