Making New Artwork

Studio of Washington, DC Artist Leslie Nolan’

In anticipation of the upcoming solo exhibit August 10 through September 17 at the Athenaeum in Old Town Alexandria,VA, working on some new paintings. So far, they’re all about the drip. Is there such a thing as too much? Perhaps, in fact, probably. But, my plan is to push the limits. Many thanks to Gallery Director/curator Twig Murray and the Northern Virginia Fine Arts Association for the sponsorship.

Athenaeum
201 Prince Street
Alexandria, Virginia

Opening – August 13 Sunday 4-6 pm
Gallery Talk – September 10 2pm with special guest Dr Erich Keel (former head of Education at the Kreeger Museum)

These newly completed paintings are now available at Georgetown’s Susan Calloway Fine Arts — 1643 Wisconsin Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20007.  http://www.callowayart.com

This grouping of paintings features fresh jazzy figures that have the feel of society on the edge. With  mostly vivid colors and painterly brush strokes, I’ve tried to maintain a blur between the real and imagined.   They have a contemporary aesthetic that’s infused with emotional tension.

As always, ambiguity and ambivalence rule.  All interpretations of these figures remain valid, possible, even probable.  I prefer that my paintings address those things that do not lend themselves to easy description.
