Artist Statement

LIV ASH

Color and the use of it fascinate me; I gravitate toward texture and abstract works, imagining the emotional landscape behind the artistic one. I prefer to paint large-scale works on canvas using acrylics, and I Ahave grown to enjoy the challenge of working within smaller limits and commission requests. I enjoy painting with brushes, pallet knives, and my hands!

Artist Statement

INGRID BLOUNT

Ingrid is a local abstract artist who believes that art is a joy and a gift.  “I enjoy using alcohol inks, acrylics, and other mediums to create.  As a continual learner, I can’t wait to try new techniques and grow as an artist.  I feel privileged to express through art and hope that every person who owns a piece of my artwork feels a connection to it; that it speaks to them and brings joy.”  Currently, Ingrid wears many hats, as a wife, mother to three children, artist, teacher, and friend. 

 

The Exhibit

 

Painting with Words & Emotions is an exhibit to showcase the many ways in which art speaks to us. 

 

For this exhibit, I’ve used various mediums including alcohol inks, acrylics, and gypsum.  The art process behind the pieces was two-fold.    My original medium of alcohol ink is the backbone of my art and I wanted to grow in my use of color combination and larger pieces.  My second objective was to use new techniques to expand my style, including use of gypsum, gold leafing and acrylics for art that feels alive. Each piece represents either an emotion or word/phrase/poem that the painting evokes to me as an artist. 

 

I hope you enjoy Painting with Words & Emotions.
