Iris Osterman: Untouched Spaces

Core Artist Iris Osterman has her bold landscape abstractions on view in the Main Gallery till April 2nd.  I asked her to share a bit about her ideas and Process.

Current Ideas.....

With this series of paintings I referred back to many walks through rocky trails, wetlands, woods and relatively untouched conservation areas. The work is mostly dense and monochromatic, with a heavy graphic line.

Material and Process........

I will use any medium within arm’s length to achieve what I am trying to express, though I am smitten with oil paint. Drawing with charcoal and graphite, and encaustics often appear in my paintings as well. The work evolves with many create-and-destroy cycles.
