To Each Her Own
Sharon Carson, Cathy Doocy, Debi Pendell
Opening Reception: October 11, 6-8 pm
The works of these three artists look very different from one another: Carson’s bold blocks of color; Doocy’s thin washes and drips; Pendell’s sharp black symbols collaged onto loosely painted backgrounds. All are based on landscape, but none of them are landscape paintings in the traditional sense. None are totally abstract, yet all are abstracted. Sky, ground, trees, and clouds can be identified, but none are realistically depicted. That is not the interest of any of these three artists. Although appearing so different in final form, the landscapes by Carson, Doocy and Pendell have a common impetus. All three artists love playing with the basic elements of art: line, shape, form, color, space, contrast, pattern, etc. That these elements create landscape is quite entirely secondary. Landscape serves them as an excuse to play around with drawing, painting, and collaging and a starting point to create a personal, idiosyncratic expression.
