Solo Exhibit: BODY works by Penny Treese to be shown at Artmatch Gallery, Atlanta GA

figurative & abstract land/sea/skyscapes

Are beauty and aging contradictions in terms?

Observing the way our culture treats aging as an evil to avoid, Treese’s technique begins with an out-of-focus photograph of a nude woman on thin paper. She distresses the image with water, wine, coffee, salt and cold—natural elements that age the human body. Finally, applying heat to layers of molten unbleached beeswax, Treese creates a beauty and integrity from her “aged” work—ultimately answering the afore mentioned question with an empathic and absolute

Paint Love Volunteer Event at Kate’s Club

On May 4th myself and Kim McGill Stuart volunteered on the behalf of Paint Love for the benefit of the kids at Kate’s Club today.  The theme of the day was:

“I’m fine: leave me alone or am I?”
[avoiding loneliness and isolation, supporting one another]

Our mission was to use bees wax and melting crayon projects to encourage these kids to explore their emotions.

I walked the teens through exploring their emotions by writing down feelings, burning them then creating a work of art from those charred thoughts and molten beeswax.  Kim taught them to find their emotions through color selection/palette choice by using the method of using a heat gun to melt crayons on canvas.  The kids were amazing and open to the experience of exploring their loss through creation.
