Poured Paintings Closing Reception This Saturday Edgemar Center For The Arts:

A reception will be held this Saturday evening at The Gallery at Edgemar Center for the Arts in Santa Monica for the closing of local artist Felicity Nove’s exhibition “Poured Paintings.”

Nove said she viewed realism and abstraction as one and the same – differing only in personal focus and how one chooses to view them.

“By eliminating the brushstroke I use gravity to create the line, veil or glaze,” Nove said. “Marks are produced by the passage of the vertical drip or horizontal pour. Through this process, I explore the physical nature of the material – the chemical interactions and viscosity of the paint – giving rise to the indeterminate flow.

She said she was able to emphasize formal qualities in controlling the fluid nature of the materials, through pours, floods, tilting and pooling.

“Expressive color, surface quality, transparency versus intensity, and the emerging forms constantly evolve from these interactions,” she said. “I use these forms to explore both internal and external worlds.

“Through paint pours – evocative of deep sink-holes, galactic hazes, and swirling cosmos – I experiment with creating a universe-like space on a two-dimensional surface. My painting is reminiscent of viewing an expansive and stellar world through a microscope. The juxtaposition of these two manners of seeing compels me to explore conceptual boundaries through formal spatial relations.”

With a B.A. in Visual Arts from Sydney College of the Arts, and a Post Graduate Diploma from Australian Film, Television and Radio School, Nove is the recipient of the prestigious Kenneth Myer Creative Scholarship Fellowship – a one-year’s residence in Tokyo, Japan, and the Art Directors Guild of America award for Excellence in Production Design.

She currently lives and works in Los Angeles, while also maintaining a studio in Australia.

The Edgemar Center for the Arts is located at 2437 Main St. in Santa Monica.

Reservations are requested for the reception from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, May 12. To RSVP, please contact info@edgemarcenter.org, or call 310.392.7327 or visit www.edgemarcenter.org for more information.
