Painting and Drawing
From the series Conversations and Glass
Staring up through the leaves of a tree,
A sea of faces on a crowded street,
Drops of water creating rings that spread, collide and intersect-
All of these images reflect on the repetition and balance of a perpetually cyclical world.
Striving for a ”controlled randomness”, Christine Bespalec-Davis allows her hand to move and flow with the energy of the person or situation she is capturing. Sometimes soft and meditative and others frantic and sharp, these linear paintings extend her abstract work to a more expressionistic level.
During their creation, each mark is placed on the page personifying memories, symbolizing faces and layered in replication of dream and memory. Both just slightly out of focus, reach, and understanding but part of our everyday interactions.
