Still Water by Adele Shaw

Gallery 1855 (820 Pole Line Road, Davis, CA) presents the solo exhibition of painter Adele Louise Shaw “Water: a fluent conversation”. The exhibition will run from July 1-July 30th with a special artist reception July 10th, 1-4:00pm.

The water references within the Tao the Ching by Lao Tzu are a strong influence in Shaw’s work. She says: Deeply rooted in the natural world, the Tao speaks an international language of spirit. It is with this same spirit my conversations with water carry on.

These paintings are created with inks and acrylics on paper. Shaw’s signature style uses calligraphic brushwork to draw in rhythm and form; tache brushwork to convey a sense of movement and flickering light: and action painting methods of pouring and trowing paint to transform energy and movement into multiple layers of abstraction. The large compositions envelop the viewer.

This exhibition presents paintings which are stirring, emotional surroundings to be in conversation with. They invoke multiple ideas of passion and longing, force and fury, the dance and the ecstasy. They are a homage to the spiritual truth that water conveys. These paintings invoke our universal emotional and physical connection to water, and connect the viewer to the subject with an elegant, sensual grace spoken with paint.

Small encaustic paintings are also part of the exhibition. Shaw has been working with encaustic paint for 18 years. Her work with encaustic continues to push the boundaries of this ancient medium.

The exhibition will be open to the public July 2 – 29, 2016 M-F 9-3:00pm. The artist will be present for an open house Sunday, July 10th, 1-4pm. More information about the artist and the exhibition can be found at http://www.adeleshaw.com
