Join us for the opening reception of At Full Volume II featuring a selection of paintings by Joyce Weiss, late Angels Gate Studio Artist. Weiss’ brilliant use of color combined with gestural forms at bodily scale created bold visions on canvas.
The artist commented on her practice, “Color is my life – I use it at full volume. I work with acrylic or oil paint and often include three-dimensional objects, collage, photographs, and text in my work. My world is populated by imaginary characters and reality bites. The distant past, the volatile present, and our constantly evolving future provide the major inspirations for my work. [An] emotional roller coaster of passion, dreams and nightmares exist in my world of color. With my paintings and writings, I attempt to expose the fantasies that elude us in our waking hours, and the real-life events that affect the human condition in the twenty-first century.”
The exhibition runs through October 1st.
