"small wonders" Solo Art Exhibit @ The Gallery on the Green in Canton

“small wonders”

Spring is a time of renewal.  Life wakes up from the long hibernation of winter.  Creatures great and small begin to stir.  Flowers bud and begin to fill the air with their sweet aroma.  This show is a celebration of the wonder, diversity and delight in life.  The joy of observation blossoms into understanding of our world.  Planet earth is amazing in all her glory, from the tiny insects to the great beasts that roam.  The butterfly is especially astonishing!
The butterfly, for me, has always represented transformation and renewal.  It is incredible to imagine such a creature that starts out in a slow crawl as a caterpillar then, encases itself in a chrysalis to turn into a chemical soup only to emerge as a beautiful butterfly talking flight flickering about.  The butterfly inspires our imagination.  The butterfly gives us hope that we too can transform and fly.
My process for this show brings together different materials to create a trans-formative layering effect.  I use newspaper, tissue, watercolor paint, acrylic paint, graphite, pastel and ink to create a scaffold effect of moving in and through the elements.  My desire is to have you think about the process of creation, whether in art or in nature.

Please, come join me to investigate and rejoice over one of nature’s amazing small wonders. (artwork is for sale)
