NINA LIPKOWITZ: "DANCING LINES, DANCING COLORS: THE WAY OF THE iPAD
MAY 3 - MAY 27, 2019
OPENING RECEPTION: SATURDAY, MAY 4, 3-6PM
Nina Lipkowitz is known for trying out different mediums and embracing new technologies. She started her career as a sculptor and a potter and now her brush and palette are among the tools that generate exciting images on her iPad. For this show, her paintings are printed as limited and open edition archival pigment prints on fine art paper and canvas.
This body of work is inspired by and mined from her unconscious, creative world. Her process and the light that emanates from the screen of the iPad, takes on a metaphysical significance. Each piece is a meditation, a work of improvisation like jazz. In all of these images, line, shape, color, space, pattern and texture flow across the surface with varying rhythms and moods.
“I never meant to be a painter. It just happened. I learned about form and color during my years as a sculptor and potter. I carved marble and alabaster, created clay vessels, learned what makes colors sing, and drew and drew and drew, slowly learning how lines twist and turn and dance across paper, turning into forms, becoming sacred spaces containing endless puddles of color.”
“Dancing Lines, Dancing Colors” provides us with a deeper understanding of the artist’s process which includes the movements of her finger (digit) fluidly drawing on the iPad screen (digital device).
Most recently, Lipkowitz has shown her iPad works at The Gallery at No. Six Depot in West Stockbridge, MA, Berkshire School in Sheffield, MA and the Works Gallery in NYC. Her work is in private collections in North America and Europe.
