About the Event
A show of Abstraction works by Leya Evelyn and her students.
Bi-weekly assignments help to explore both techniques and approaches, learning
new ways of applying paint, using colour, and experimenting .
Opening Reception: Friday August 11, 7pm
.Abstract paintings are about explorations, possibilities, imaginings and openings. The work considers the painting
process, the marks, the color and the impact of these to be image itself, without literal references
Although I do some drawing, most of my work is abstract painting. At times it can also be
figurative. The mediums I generally use are acrylic paint, ink and torn paper on canvas.
I’m inspired by nature but I paint from within. Mark making and colour
are my main tools. I’m after a feeling.
I work in acrylic, mixed water media and oil to paint from alternate voices...some known, and some not.
Inspired by nature and the energy of the natural world, Patty incorporates colours, textures
and shapes into her abstract pieces with a goal for you to feel that energy in each one.
I generally approach painting in an instinctive and abstract way, letting the
process of painting unearth the direction it needs to go, revealing texture and
energetic mark making along the way.

I work in acrylic and create colourfields that are inspired by landscapes and colours that surround us.
