Rebecca Yurkevicz Gallery "Cloudscape Oracle"

June 11 - August 27th

Artist Statement
The cycles of the cosmos and linking of a heavenly space to an earthly existence has inspired my spirit and this body of work. Finding order within chaos, feeling peace and yet an existential vastness when gazing up to the sky has encompassed my paintings and creative aesthetic. The Zen Buddhist practice a meditative form of painting called “sumi-e,” which utilizes simple ink washes and brush strokes to visually depict a “feeling” of an object. Every stroke is made with intention, purpose, and respect. In many of my paintings I have been inspired to capture the polarity of order within chaos through intended brush strokes and the spontaneity of my intuition.

Juried Art Show: Triumph

April 10, 2021 - May 8, 2021

Congratulations to Marie Cousar, the winner of our Juried Art Show, "Triumph," her watercolor painting "Fatherhood 2" won Best in Show!
 
"I took the photo when we went to visit our daughter, son-in-law & grandchildren. They were at their church. The two older siblings hadn’t seen their cousin, the baby in months. The baby lives in Wilmington, they live on Maryland. So when they saw him, they rushed up to greet him & I took the photo! The painting is done on hot press paper. I tried to show movement in the brush strokes & express joy in their gestures." - Marie Coursar
