And while I am away......

The Edge of the World 48 x38 oil Lisa Pressman
Pressman, based in West Orange, N.J., creates paintings that are simultaneously lyrical and glacial: The open spaces in her oil and encaustic works are intersected by thin swirling lines suggestive of tornadoes, but also by thick, clotted ones that bring to mind chain links and rivers. Pressman clearly loves to paint.”

I  don't apply to juried shows much any more but on a whim I decided to apply to this one because the juror,  Elisabeth Sussman will be curating the next Whitney Biennial. Hey, you never know.... You can see this painting in the 22nd International Juried Exhibition show from June 28th- July 16th at Viridian Artists, 530 West 25TH Street between 10th & 11th Avenues in Chelsea.

 A special reception will be held on Thursday, June 30th, 5:00-8:00pm.

Spirit of Motion, Following the Path  both 24 x 24 encaustic LPressman
