Monoprint in Group Show

Regatta – 11″x14″ monoprint

A monoprint is an image painted on a plate and printed from the plate. One or sometimes two prints are made from the plate. I’m really enjoying creating art using this technique new to me. I have posted some monoprints on my website: VirginiaGiordano.com > paintings > monoprints.

This piece has been selected for a juried show sponsored by the Art Students League of New York: Summer! Exhibition 2013.

Please join me on Wednesday, July 17th from 5 to 7 pm for the Artist Reception.

Manhattan Borough President’s Offices
1 Centre Street, 19th FL New York City
Dates: July 17, 2013 to August 23, 2013
Artist Reception: July 17th from 5 to 7pm

Changing perspective: we see the world as we see ourselves – a continuing spectrum fracturing and coalescing in unexpected ways – a fluid and dynamic process of self-reflection.

Spark — #13

Perhaps . . .

Perhaps all creative manifestation is the result of a wild spark, spontaneous and nomadic, whose origin may elude us.

Here in the ‘northern latitudes,’ we are looking forward to the end of winter, to the onset of spring, and the return of vibrant colors in the earth and sky.

This painting was on exhibit at the Ceres Gallery in NYC last December in my show, Passage.

Quartet – January

Quartet

A couple of years ago in January, I used a ‘daily painters’ model painting a small piece every day. I met my goal of 2 weeks and 14 paintings.

I called the series Looking Upward, and each piece was given the title Skylight and a number.  These are 4 of my favorites, each 5” x 7.” It’s a good practice and fun when undertaken in a free and joyful way. “Beginner’s mind,” as a friend said to me recently.

Skylight # 3, 4, 8, 5, acrylic on paper, 5″ x 7″
