May 7 - June 9, 2013
May's featured artist is Luna Lee Ray, presenting a brand new body of work titled Origins. More abstract than much of her recent work, these paintings are inspired by seeds, spring, and cell division, and address themes of growth and emergence.
My work is inspired and informed by my observations and interactions with the natural world, as well as my inner emotions, dreams, and visions. I am an avid (obsessive!) gardener, and spend many hours in the dirt, with my sketchbook and camera nearby. The forms and processes I find in nature are not just lovely and fascinating, but also perfect visual metaphors for all my spiritual yearnings. Technically, I love layers and texture and unusual combinations of materials. I often start with a random ground that influences the final piece in unpredictable and exciting ways. It is often unclear where one material ends and another begins, adding to the overall feeling of mystery in the finished image. My goal is to draw the viewer into a deep, rich world.
