"Contradicting Lines and Affirmation"

Sunday, April 11, 2021 • 2-3pm PT

Join us LIVE on ZOOM for an artist talk, “Contradicting Lines and Affirmation.” I’ll sit down for an informal chat with friend and artist, Johanne Marion for a short conversation about this collection and take some questions from the chat window.

Pretty Things on the Upswing is a collection of new one-of-a-kind paintings on paper in acrylic marker. With light at the end of a dark tunnel, pretty things grow from the ashes of the past. This new work is improvisational, with no intended outcome – only hopeful surprises. Within a spontaneous framework, there are intentional embedded dichotomies of line and shape to create a playground of visual cues and possible meanings. All titles for this collection are given by viewers like you, including “Pretty Things on the Upswing” title by artist Jenna Huisken. #TitleMe! @thejemalshow
