M.F.A THESIS EXHIBITION, ‘EQUILIBRIUM’, Winthrop university Elizabeth Dunlap Patrick Gallery. Artist statement: My inspiration for this series came from music, landscape and the evocation of old memories. In each painting I tried to capture the rhythmical structure of my emotions through composition of form, shape and color. By incorporating sculptural relief sculpture to my work, I am also adding another dimension to the experience of the viewer’s interpretation of painting.
