July 7 | 11am-2pm |
Come visit with gallery artist, Lisa Reed, on Saturday, July 7th from 11am-2pm. Her demonstration will showcase her wax process.
“I paint in many, many layers of cold wax and oil with no preconceived composition or ultimate outcome in my mind. I create paintings by covering up one finished painting after another. At some point I know when it is time to let the medium show me what is underneath. I begin to “unpaint”–scraping and carving and taking away to reveal something brand new. What happens is totally unconscious. The shapes, sometimes abstract and sometimes expressionistic landscapes reveal themselves. The yummy medium itself is like magic–full of surprises and mysticism. My job as an artist is to simply let go, uncover and “unpaint” what is there already. The soulscapes reveal themselves!”
