Art Opening Reception
Friday March 24, 2006 6:30-9:30pm
After the Flood, a series of haunting imagined
???floodscapes??? and solitary figures caught in
the water was painted in response to Hurricane
Katrina. Georgianne is distilling the figure and abstracting
the landscape to create subtle, layered paintings
which describe the desolate calm after the storm.
To express the sense of hope and rediscovery
That often follows tragedy, these paintings are
intentionally imperfect, reconstructed as objects
of beauty despite the flaws. After the Flood
seeks to convey the weight of loss while offering
an undeniably beautiful world
reflected in the waters and gray-violet skies.
5% of proceeds donated to the American Red Cross
in its efforts to aid victims of Katrina.
