Unframed Abstracts: Paper & Canvas
Paper or canvas, all subjects.
Though not per se an abstractionist, Ms. Rhys produces a lot of drawings and some canvases which fall into this category. Maybe they are done on the fly, working so quickly that precision is abandoned – oftentimes late at night. Or perhaps they are the giddy representations of work created while under the influence of high spirits – whether alcoholic or psychological…or both! Regardless, they carry her trademark techniques: on paper, of smearing the ink to define volumes and create visual drama; and on canvas, a dense application of variegated color ground over which is applied a loose network of poured paint and drips. Please note, canvases will appear in this section during the next round of additions to the site in the new year.
