My work is an expression of connection and physicality in the world. Drawing from the natural world and my experiences in it, my process relies upon intuition and skill to bring forth dimension. Like many contemporary painters of the 21st century my work bridges the gap between abstraction and realism and I enjoy playing on the edges. The resulting style is fluid, and meant to help move the viewer into psychological spaces of contemplation. .
Ultimately I hope to inspire my viewers to a deeper consideration of what it means to be alive today- to become aware of themselves in their own space in their bodies, in their families, in their communities, and in the world.
For the last several years I've been exhibiting my work throughout the United States and in Canada. I've won several awards for my abstract expressionist paintings, including earning both Judges Choice Awards at the International Juried Creating Energy Exhibit at the Chabot Gallery, Providence RI in May 2011 for 'Tantric Sea' and 'Dress Series # 5'.
In the fall of 2011 I exhibited a collection of nine paintings as an installation at Open Concept Gallery, in Grand Rapids, Michigan. This exhibition, which was titled 'Paper Dolls: A Dress Series in Paint and Poetry', incorporated poetic works by my husband, a writer and poet, inspired by my dress paintings. The works have since been compiled into an art book and can be purchased through our collective website at www.ekprhastixarts.com.
