At the Secord Gallery

Secord Gallery Nov 2012, originally uploaded by leyaevelyn.

Usually, of course, my paintings look very different outside my studio, when they are in a clean, new environment. This time, I didn’t feel that way. All day Friday I could feel the energy of the paintings. It was a very strong feeling, almost audible. I could feel it coming down the highway from Halifax. So when I was in the gallery that evening for the opening reception, how the paintings felt was more important to me than what they looked like. Strange, but I do think other people may have felt it too. There was not a lot of analytical conversation, just a feeling of enjoyment of the energy. Or maybe it was only my experience of it. I’ll have to ask a few friends.

I think the exhibit looks good. I’ll go back this week and take some more installation shots.

About leyaevelyn

About thirty years ago, I moved from New York City to rural Nova Scotia. For an artist, it is a good place to live. Spacious and quiet. Despite the beautiful scenery and frequently grey skies, my abstract paintings focus on color, its expressive qualities and how it creates form and space.
