2016-2017 Four Seasons Art

The 2016-2017 series explores the boundary between subject and medium. Some paintings straddle the line between abstraction and representation, while others explore the edges between the unmarked paper and painted figure. Inspiration for the paintings is drawn from the rhythms and images in the writings of Virginia Woolf.

-Michiko Theurer
