In this new shaped-paper series, Eva Bovenzi uses her background in sculpture to fold and shape rice paper before and after painting it. The result is a series of beautiful non-rectangular sculptured paintings in vividly rich hues. In Bovenzi’s words:
“I painted this series in rural Colorado, looking out at the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, and gradually realized that I could reference landscape in these pieces. A fold could suggest a cliff edge or a horizon line.”
So one can see landscape or an abstracted painting… or both!
Either way, these folded sculptured paintings are true beauty with edge.
Stop by the gallery on Saturday, September 26th, from Noon (12PM) to 5PM to be the first to see them.
