POUR. PUSH. LAYER. ::: Jeannie Motherwell
September 1, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Painter Jeannie Motherwell will present an exhibit of new works at Rafius Fane Gallery in SoWA, September 1st – October 21st, opening reception Friday, September 1st, 6-8PM.
Motherwell is amazed by creation— oceans and skies in changing weather, Hubble-type images of the universe— and seeks to capture vast space and three-dimensional energy. The eye moves off the edges of her canvas while bouncing back through its surface. Her pictures explore a complexity which yields marvelous surprises and unanticipated directions. The sea, sky and earth influence her palette, and black—long one of her favorite colors—contributes to the balance of warmth and steeliness in her abstract paintings, and to their evocation of solidity and transparency, motion and stillness. Motherwell inherited a love of painting from her father, Robert Motherwell, and stepmother, Helen Frankenthaler, two pillars of mid-century abstraction. Her studio is in Somerville, Massachusetts.
