Janet Pearlman

 

 

WriterHouse is proud to present the work of local artist Janet Pearlman for the month of February. Influenced by Matisse, Pearlman uses blocks of color to create layered works where shapes and forms slowly emerge onto the painting's surface.

She wrote, "Layer after layer is laid down in paint and charcoal. As the piece proceeds, lessons about living reveal themselves, surprising, vivid and deeply felt. The painting becomes a moment to moment adventure: color, image, emotion, at once stimulating and soothing, a reach for harmony".

 

The exhibit will remain on display through February 28th.
