Opening Reception, Julie Shipp

When: Sat., Sept. 2, 6-9 p.m. 2017

Artist statement: "Deflected Sparks is a series of paintings that explores my continuing interest in capturing the uncapturable visual anomalies of light and color, and revealing the conflicting forces of nature. Painting is always a direct confrontation of both nature, and the very nature of painting. Activated surfaces with multi-directional marks and “spark-forces”, allow the viewer to make the decision if this is chaos or simply a unification of the spark-forces that turned their visual paths. Paint is pulled and folded, in somewhat unconventional painting methods in unrealistic, but illusionistic space."

Price: Free
