4th Annual Upstate Invitational - Diggory, Medina, Serrianne
Oct. 22- Nov. 27, 2016
Reception: Saturday Oct 22, 5-8pm
Laffer Gallery 96 Broad St, Schuylerville, NY
My works for this exhibition reflect my current fascination with the expressive visual energy of vortexes, whether I am inspired by ones that exist in front of me or whether I am introducing them into a calmer world.
For me the world does not sit still; even the boulders and fallen trees along a shore suggest change, although at a slower pace. I often use a strong linear element such as a horizon or edge of a lake or field to anchor the curvilinear spinning. While many of my works respond to the Adirondack Park in upstate New York, I have recently been inspired by locations along the California coast, in my neighborhood in Saratoga Springs and in the clutter of my studio as I decide what to do with my mother’s things.The work varies from 4 inches wide (some plein aire works from my canoe) to an eight foot long piece that bends into a corner.
