Lois Dickson makes her paintings in response to images that emerge from her imagination. A painting can evolve using spontaneous sweeping and interlocking gestures. As images appear on her canvas, and colors ask to be present, the process of working and solving the painting begins. The result is a conflagration of images that are simultaneously imaginative and engineered, deliberate and accidental. View catalogue: Dickson_catalogue.pdf
Pamela Salisbury's new work represents a departure from the artist’s earlier oil paintings, which were made from observation and often made reference to birds and their habitat. While she continues to borrow basic shapes from the natural world, the forms are more abstract, and in many examples, highly stylized.
