2018-2019 Four Seasons Art

The 2018-2019 painting series refracts themes of color and gesture from six earlier paintings (Ciaccona, Ring, Cathedral, Fountain, Sunburst, and Aqua Fortis) in six new abstract landscapes (Canopies, House of Light, Nomi's Garden, Lyre, Prism, and Plains). The final painting, Rose Window, is a free improvisation between rhythm and light. 

Four Seasons paintings are $800/each and are available for purchase beginning February 1, 2019 on a first-come, first-served basis. To purchase a painting or set up a viewing, contact Four Seasons at fourseasons@ecu.edu or 252-328-6019.
