Light and Air

Opening: Saturday, August 3  5-7pm

Petria Mitchell uses nature as an initial reference point in her paintings. “This allows me to play with limitless visual possibilities with a thorough appreciation for abstraction. My paintings are compositions of internal places not visited on foot. When working with atmosphere and diffused light, I'm able to emphasize my interest in the plasticity of paint, rather than the physics of light. These paintings are a continuation of my exploration into the language of atmosphere and the ethereal world of light and place. The use of tonal gradation and converging lines which dissolve into accumulating layers of mist are signature elements in my works."
