The exhibition opens for the first ArtHop of the year on January 3 from 5-8 PM and runs through February 2. Lost @ Sea is composed of two separate bodies of work. The smaller pieces, mostly 2008-2010, are from a series of paintings that deal with the unsustainable use of fossil fuels as an energy source and its consequences to us and the other living organisms that inhabit our planet. The larger paintings have all been completed this year. All of these works are concerned with color, (that is, contrasting both pure hues and light and dark values and the interactions between them) as well as form, perspective, and the illusion of three dimensional space.
