Dialogues

May 25- June 25, 2011
HILARY TAUB


These pieces grew out of a lifetime of figure drawing and a love of abstraction; a joy of pushing paint around a canvas and the appreciation of the elegance of a charcoal line; the beauty of shapes against open space.  They are an interplay, a back and forth, a conversation, a dialogue. 

These pieces begin with an old painting, with a history. I use the old piece as ground for the new piece.  I work from a live model, merging what I see in front of me with what is on the paper.  This is where the conversation begins.  The elements speak to each other, layering, interacting, and merging.  As I proceed a line speaks to a color and one shape combines with another.  Slowly out of the multiple elements a composition shows itself and the dialogue forms.
