This abstract show was judged by inspirational expressionist healing artist, Dorothy Fagan. Fagan transforms trauma into strokes of color on inspirational healing journeys through art. She developed her unique ColorME energized palette during residences in France and Italy. She also fulfills the healing mission of her artistry with paintings, poetry, live interactive painting demonstrations of the healing creative process, and with private consultations.
Fagan commented that an opportunity to experience the world through color, texture, space and form awaits the viewers in the prize-winning artist’s paintings at the RAL Art Center’s Abstract Show.
Peering through lush translucent veils of magenta, green, and lavender, one discovers nuances of yellow painted by Michael Stevens in his FIRST PLACE show-stopping work called “#23.” Fagan explained that this five foot painting feels confident, yet exploratory. Stevens treats us to a portal of the world within by inviting the viewer to dive deep within to find themselves in a warp and weft of ebb and flow.
