Alison Green, Confluence: Plant/Life February 7-March 7, 2020 Artist Statement: My Art is an exploratory journey, both in subject matter and process. I'm fascinated with the endless variety and complexity of botanicals such as plants, fungi, lichen, flowers, trees, and seeds. Using encaustic, oil paint, collage, and drawing, I merge representational plant forms with evocative abstract elements.

Exhibit/208

Lucy Maki: Pointless Pleasure @ EXHIBIT/208, 208 Broadway SE, Abq.

The concern is to treat painting as an image/object, bridging oppositions of concrete/illusory, flat/dimensional, deliberate/accidental, geometric/organic, and or, figurative/abstract to create unexpected contrasting effects and complex imaginative states of being. For her upcoming show, Pointless Pleasure, at…
