Clare Grill's Process of Discovery

This weekend I had the pleasure of viewing Clare Grill's work in person as a part of Transforming Accessory at LVL3 gallery. I've admired Clare's work via the internet for awhile but seeing her paintings up close and personal is an entirely different experience. From strictly abstract to loosely representational, she draws on references ranging from her memories and emotions, the surrounding world, family relics, and even to painting itself. Her work is centered on the process of discovery and possesses the kind of rich texture and layered composition that I willingly get lost in over and over again.  Here are a few of my favorites: 

+ You can discover more of Clare's work on her website or at LVL3 gallery until Feb 22nd.
