Opening Reception Friday, February 23, 2018 from 7 - 9 PM  


My work focuses on the physical application of medium to surface, and the thought process behind it. I investigate how the formal components of a painting interact with one another, by analyzing and questioning the process with every decision made. In my paintings, colour is capable of changing everything. Poured instances of colour occasionally combine, creating a new colour on their own. Other times, they sit beside each other maintaining complete individuality. I explore the relationship colours form when made to exist with one another, by pushing them past their comfort zone. - Emily Schaefer
