Artist Opening Reception for Marti Higgins

  • Hayley Gallery 260 Market Street, Suite B New Albany United States (map)

As a painter, I adore color and shape. Growing up near New York City in the 1960s and 70s, I was moved by the strong, bold, gestural compositions and the seeming spontaneity in the work of the abstract expressionists. Art was everywhere; in advertising, billboards, newspapers and publications such as “Look” and “Life” magazines which consistently featured articles about contemporary art. The bold colors, rhythms and subject matter I attempt to express in my artwork are due to these early influences.

Living now in Cleveland for 35 years, I call it home. I like to experiment with the relativity of color; how colors influence each other by proximity. I expose relationships in color by working in layers. Many under layers are not immediately visible in a given piece. These initial colors and shapes, however, ground the finished product by influencing colors yet to be applied and by showing up in glimmers and slices. I like to include a surprise color which at first glance may seem incongruous but has a way of solidifying the composition. My finished pieces are impressionistic landscapes and abstractions. All of my subject matter is derived from my observation of nature, including my flower gardens. I am inspired by the sense of disorder, yet perfect organization, I feel when in nature. My mediums are acrylic on canvas, acrylic and paper collage on canvas and encaustic.
