Marsha Lieberman: Still Life Exhibit at PROVISIONS


Still Life Exhibit at PROVISIONS, 30 Crafts Avenue, Northampton, MA
October 6 to November 1, 2013

Artist’s Reception: Northampton Arts Night Out, Friday October 11, 5pm to 7pm.

The paintings on exhibit at Provisions are from two separate series­, Tangerines Moving and Mazes & Labyrinths, created over a 12 year span.
 
These are whimsical portraits of fruits and flowers surrounded by textiles arranged in waves and folds or maze-like structures. By carefully juxtaposing and superposing patterns, I aim to convey the idea that space is never truly empty, and that beneath every layer is yet another teeming with design and movement.
 
I returned to painting in 1990 after spending many years as a professional dancer.  My dance career left me with a lasting interest in pattern and spatial design.
