NOT YOUR AVERAGE PAINTINGS by Waverly Clark Fitch Centre Gallery, West.
THE ROAMING SPIRIT by Dorothy Ellis "Abstract art lacks easy access to recognizable objects. It is non-figurative and does not rely on subject matter for its being. It requires a sense of composition, volume, line, color and interval dynamics of the viewer. The very essence of art, stripped of allusions, is based on my experiences in the landscape. Abstract art is full of color, light, and lyrical movements that demand our most abstract thinking.
The paintings produced are enjoyed, but the viewers must come with their own dialogue. Collectors of abstract art are a confident lot with personal interpretations. I hope my paintings and prints speak to the viewers heart and demand one’s abstract thinking."
The exhibit will be in the Corner Gallery.
