Groundspace Project is pleased to present, New Work by Lillian Abel and Robin Parsons. Ms. Abel will be exhibiting new paintings and ceramic sculpture and Ms. Parsons new paintings. Dissimilar in subject matter but having the same density of surface and intensity of color, both artists produce deeply rich and personal meditations.
My art is about exploring the balance between abstraction and representation. The paintings are abstracted by the palette knife, searching for hidden worlds and images in the paint that reveal on the picture plane. They need to be uncovered, stroked, massaged and moved onto the surface, brought up from where they are hiding; surprising me with their ability to come forth when called by my hand. Revealing the recognized of our ‘world sight’ as unrecognizable, opening the eye of the witness to the intimate and the remote. Beginning from the darkness, moving to find hidden worlds that lay just beyond the edge of our awareness, bringing forth the unexplored knowledge of the unseen. When the scales of our eyes are lifted we are brought to the underlying entity.
In January of 2010 I moved to the beautiful Ojai Valley and began work on the panels exhibited here. These panels began as a personal exploration of virtues and sins in an attempt to better understand and learn from identifying them. Painted on heavy wooden panels, the acrylic paint was sprayed, splattered and brushed on and sanded away to create the images represented here.
