Spotlighting Marge Loudon Moody’s upcoming Preview, Sale, and Show…

Artist Statement:

‘Paracosms’

The newest exhibition in my series of shows celebrating my 30 Year retrospective, ‘Made in America’ is entitled ‘Paracosms’ and will be at Space 1858, 1858 W Grand Street, Chicago, Illinois, opening May 10, 2013, with a reception 6:00 – 9:00p.m.

My work is inspired by the spirit of place. I make abstract acrylic paintings on canvas, collages and mixed-media pieces, which, through a rigorous process of working and reworking of composition and art elements, arrive at a harmonious expression of the essential nature of the subject.  My collage work often employs ‘found’ materials and involves layering and precise juxtaposition of line, color, shape and texture.  Life experience may be similarly layered.  At times, subject matter serves as metaphor for intangible ideas. It examines boundaries, addresses the fragility of existence, of presence, of absence, and of memory.

This show consists of several new collages on two themes – the ‘Urban Instincts’ and ‘Desert Garden’ themes as well as drawings, watercolors and mixed-media pieces from earlier years.
