beyond peaks through branches, 2010, acrylic and reflective tape on wood panel, 36x36, over there, 2010, acrylic on panel, 36x36, the falls, 2010, acrylic on panel, 36x36

this is another artist whose work i had the pleasure of viewing at the pca in pittsburgh. it's difficult to see in these images, but there is definite control of the surface through the use of paint masking as well as her decision to leave some areas of the wood base unpainted. despite this obvious control, she manages to create extremely expressive and beautifully emotional paintings that suggest the chaos and order of nature and landscape...see more here.
