A new show of my latest series, “Her Steady Horizon”, will be happening this Saturday, February 25th, 6pm-9pm at KEW Dartmouth. These paintings are based on a series of photographs from the 50’s, of unknown origin, of a woman walking into the ocean. Originally I was just struck by the imagery – pastels of the the water and sky, the composition of the woman as she moves into the sea – but as I worked on the pieces they evolved into a commentary on woman’s rights. The quintessential 50’s, well coiffed, housewife, heads steadily into the sea. Stormy surf or lulling waves, she is steadfast in her journey to a better horizon.
Join me and my host, Ray Frizzel, at KEW to see the culmination of this series at long last! Hope to see you there!
