Been way too long since I’ve posted. Just thought I’d push up a few people I’ve been looking at.
First Sondra Olson. Met her last year, seen a couple of her shows and spoke with her in her studio. She paints in a rather dark style, without morbidity or angst; as though she were painting the night. I feel she paints the light, even in the dark.
Then there’s Roger Berry a formed metal sculptor who has a number of pieces around. There is so much whimsy in his pounds, even tons, of metal.
This last one, Elizabeth Briel, I haven’t seen any actual work as she’s hopping around Southeast Asia from a base in Hong Kong. But I find her blog and her experience fascinating. To just pick up and plunk down on the other side of the world takes a certain character.
