    Event: RED 2020

    Dates: Nov. 4, 2020 - Dec. 17, 2020

    Venue: Kathryn Schultz Gallery, Cambridge, MA

    Why RED? For nearly 20 years, the Cambridge Art Association has hosted a fall exhibit, open to artists from the New England states, centered around a color – RED or BLUE, depending on the year. Both the success of the exhibit series, and the challenge to participating artists, lies in channeling the varied meanings of a color like RED. It is the color of action, violence, heat. It is the color of luck, happiness, and passion. RED is more than a color.

Biography

With my paintings I’m just celebrating the beauty I find in the world, from the natural to the man-made and the confluence between the two.  I like the challenge of filtering what I see through my eyes, brain, nerves, muscles and fingertips onto a two dimensional surface. I think I was born hard-wired to be an artist of some sort. One of my earliest memories is of when I was very small and used to suck my thumb, I would stroke my face with my index finger and imagine it was a paintbrush.

I’m primarily a realist, but while my watercolors are always pretty earthy and worldly, my acrylics tend to be ‘heightend’ and idealized versions of reality, more slick and less gritty.
