“The Neighborhood” will be unveiled for its first showing at The Atrium Gallery, Ventura, CA, at the Illogical | Illusion Exhibition tomorrow 8am-5pm, Fri, July 12th—Tue, August 20th 2019. Sixteen or more other artists are scheduled to be showing using this theme.
“Please view Illogical | Illusion as your opportunity to broadly challenge the viewer through manipulation of elements in the picture plane, intriguing composition, content or process and bold choices” — Ventura County Arts Council.
“The Neighborhood” was conceived in imagination using the fertile class notes of my non-objective teacher, the late Paul M. Scott, himself a student of legendary abstract-expressionist, Hans Hoffman.
“As reality and abstractions intersect, and colors mix on the canvas, the painting begins to take shape, but is transformed into a new work. Specific techniques toward spatial, mostly non‐objective elements are introduced. While things can get a little chaotic, I know the painting will be successful when all the elements work together” — C.W.
“The Neighborhood” was a two-month project, spanning May 3 thru July 8, 2019. Price is set for $1500.
