ABOUT JAMIE KIRKLAND



Jamie Kirkland seeks to evoke a sense of limitless space, of expansiveness, stillness and calm in her paintings. Her work has been described as “minimalist abstract landscape.” Kirkland desires to speak to the viewer through simplicity and by reducing the landscape to shapes and forms, much the same way a poet expresses an idea in three lines of haiku. And just as traditional haiku contains a kigo, or season reference, her paintings reference seasonality with an economy of expression that is almost always atmospheric.

ABOUT MICHELLE Y WILLIAMS



Imperfections, flaws, rust, asymmetry, texture, peeling paint and the principles of wabi-sabi all enliven and excite Michelle Y Williams. She approaches her blank canvas with just a beginning and no preconceived end result. Williams seeks to find balance within the work; experimenting and exploring ways to refine her craft without self-constraint. “If I am able to engage the observer, make a connection which couldn’t be conveyed verbally and ultimately elicit a visceral reaction - my work is done.”

URSULA O’FARRELL



O’Farrell has focused her painting almost entirely on the depiction of women, reflecting no doubt a concern about her own identity. These canvases are done by an artist who has absorbed the lessons of Action Painting and are done with a vigorous brush, probably also with a palette knife and a trowel with lush paint slathered on to the support.
