4 Women Artists with a Passion for the Natural World show their art at the Cultural Arts Coalition "Studio Around the Corner in March.
Patricia Bolgosano worked in the photography and print industry for over 30 years. As the digital age approached it was a natural progression to learn Photoshop. Patricia honed her digital imaging skills and works as a master printer at Visual Impact in Danbury. Today she enjoys being behind the camera as well as in front of the computer manipulating images in a creative and pleasing way. She works on all her own images from photography to final print.
For Wendy Alvarez, making art is a joyful adventure, a transcendent experience driven by imagination, intuition and discovery. She enjoys the freedom of mixed media, and has worked both two and three dimensionally using paint, metal, textiles, paper and palm frond bases. Wendy Alvarez’s work is propelled by two fascinations: Nature and Pattern. She was influenced by Navajo and Apache artists, who demonstrate that art can be informed by nature and belief.
For Pallas Athene, “The natural environment is my source of inspiration and material.” Experience on family farms brought her close to fields and animals and compelled her to look at nature’s creations. She collects material from the land, respecting the environment while foraging for materials like paper wasp nests. Pallas’s aesthetic exploration evolved from collage on flat surfaces to sculptural pieces, such as musical instruments as pure sculptural form.
Amanda Lynne’s pieces are a celebration of the beauty of the natural world. Grounded in her strong connection to plants and animals, Amanda creates paintings on components of upcycled discarded furniture, and uses a variety of upcycled materials in mixed media creations inspired by the color, form and pattern of natural objects.
