Artist Karrie Ross was features her newest exhibition, My Trees Talking. Also on view will be works by Farideh Azad and Felice Willat.
When asked what is her favorite medium, Karrie replies, “I am a frustrated pen and ink artist who loves watercolor and oils. For me they are organic, they take on a life of their own….” she adds, “So the answer is not just one but the combination of them and the way they interact with each other that I like best. Oil without acrylic just sits there blah, watercolor without some ink isn’t as alive for me…and my life is one big doodle if I can help it.”
For this exhibition, Ross offers 100 pen & ink drawings which will be available for sale and a select few will be displayed as framed originals, giclee reproductions and as greeting cards.
Also on display you’ll see the series bustier, two table-top size tree sculptures, a 60 x 48 Tree painting and a few smaller art pieces to balance it all out.
My Trees Talking, And they are Speaking Haiku! is a book that partners 80 (of the 100) whimsical pen & ink tree drawings with a haiku.
The book along with the original drawings matted with a select few framed; a 60×48 painting, two table-top assemblage “tree” sculptures and a variety of smaller paintings will be in the exhibition.
See image with Haiku a chorus of voices — sing a song singing it loud — together united
