Water in the Desert: New Paintings
New Vistas: Isabelle Abbot, Karen Blair, Janet Bruce, Kris Iden, Susan Murphy, Les Yeux du Monde Gallery, Charlottesville, VA
For three decades I have been exploring the intersection between abstract painting and landscape. My work has been shown across DC and Virginia, including exhibitions at the Corcoran Gallery of Art (curated by William Christenberry), Second Street Gallery (Charlottesville), and a show at Riverviews Artspace juried by Virginia Museum of Fine Arts curator Robin Nicholson. My paintings are in a number of private and public collections, such as those of the Emily Couric Clinical Cancer Center (Charlottesville) and the Washington Gas Light Company.
Currently, in New York city, I am working with Maurizio Pellegrin in the studio intensive program at the National Academy.
