Exhibition opening will be on the village’s First Friday Art Night, September 3rd from 6-9pm. The long time Skaneateles area artist known for nature, figure and whimsical paintings will be in attendance to discuss her work.
Refreshments and musical entertainment will be provided.
“This recent figure drawing series combines the tradition of life observation drawing and experimental digital techniques. I combine multiple hand drawn images with my digital imagery, handmade paper hand written letters and found artifacts. These figure drawing pieces reflect urban settings, architectural and natural environments.”
“Each image created from my life figure drawings become a unique work in a series of related themes. My digital techniques have become drawing tools as much as my paint brush or charcoal stick. I work to create an emotional connection to the art image. I enjoy the psychological element that happens between artist, life model and drawing surface. I also continue to work in a variety of traditional media, nature and whimsical themes; including my jewelry design work that is shown at Imagine That Gallery.”
“I work at my home studio in Marietta, NY where I find inspiration in area vistas and my English gardens. I teach drawing in the Fashion Department at Syracuse University, where I earned an MFA in Illustration and an MS in Environmental Design.”
“You may also view my art at www.joycebackus.com.”
