Inhabiting New Earth

acrylic paintings, art, contemporary art, female artist

My paintings are often gut-reactions to news reports or to issues I care about. In my latest series, “Inhabiting New Earth,” I’m approaching the 2020 Pandemic from various perspectives — family dynamics,  Zoom meetings, Covid isolation, and all the many societal cataclysms we are faced with in this “new earth.”

Silence of Nowhere

acrylic paintings, art, contempory art, female artist

“Silence of Nowhere” — my latest series, still ongoing, of the inbetween, in limbo, etc. Landscapes, seascapes, people… Some of these are parts of 2 panels…like frames of a film (not all pictured here).

Landscapes are a new adventure for me, and a solace. They should mirror the inscape, not just add to the canon of pretty-pretty. Some of these paintings are a combination chalk pastel and acrylic and ink.
