FEELIN' GOOD

Stacy Dynan

 

Stacy’s paintings are metaphors for positive thinking.  Her ‘Feel Good’ series offers reminders to stay in the moment along each path traveled, a compliment to her ‘Fields’ and ‘Roads’ works that manifest idyllic destinations filled with the promise that right thereall is right in the world.  There is not a cloud in the sky, literally or metaphorically, to diminish an otherwise perfect day!

Through the use of acrylic paints and other mixed media, Stacy investigates how texture, color and shape relate to each other on canvas.  Her paintings explore the dynamic interplay between transparent and opaque elements, often through application of her colors in dozens of layers to achieve the particular depth and radiance she desires.

EXHIBIT OPENING: 'Dance of the Koi' Carole R. Moore @ 2223

DANCE OF THE KOI

Carole R. Moore

 

Many of my paintings feature koi and scenes from water gardens. For inspiration I reflect on the time I’ve spent in Japan, and on the two koi I keep in my studio. They swim close together, often nuzzling one another. Their grace and interplay of motion reminds me of a dance.
 
It’s important to me to find the moments of peace and beauty in such a busy and troubled world, and my paintings are meant to create a space of refuge for the viewer.
