We remember images much more easily than words because they are double-coded in the brain. When you see a picture, you identify the concept as well the visual information.

I am creating a series of bowls in the style of "Prairie Nights", which is the Glass Column installed in Gallery Alley. These bowls will explore the textural flow of glass, using glass rods pre-formed to imitate the brush stroke and bold style found in Van Gogh paintings. They focus on jewels of the prairie: the night sky and fields of grass. One shows the smallness of man and the other our harvesting of nature for our needs.

Liz Shea’s work reflects her skill in taking design elements and creating both meaningful and
fascinating compositions, as shown in Artist’s Hands I, II, and III. The Tree of Knowledge includes elements in nature and Liz’s love of children. Additionally, other work included in Liz’s exhibition demonstrate her eclectic interests and ongoing exploration in visual media.

Most of us probably have encountered an insurmountable object or difficulty in life. The Badass Trucks Series is inspired by just such difficulties and obstacles. The series evolved into paintings and drawings that are not only visual metaphors but studies in shape and color resting on the flat plane of a canvas or paper. I hope someday when you are stuck in traffic behind a badass truck not going anywhere, you remember one of my images.

These works were selected to focus primarily upon atmosphere. Many atmospheres surround us in our shared, natural world; I believe all of them also speak to private - yet universal - emotions.
After all, we all live under the same sky

Although our style and process are different, our work suggests a ‘sense of place’. We hope you enjoy viewing our art as much as we enjoyed creating it.
