jacqueline rush lee’s paintures

While much has been written about Jacqueline Rush Lee’s book art sculpture over the last decade, I am most interested in the artist’s figurative Paintures – acrylic and oil paint skins and scrapings over metal armatures. The Hawaii based artist’s latest series emerged from her 2007 Chromascapes series as “a playful respite from the labour-intensive task of building sculptures out of hundreds of layers of paint”.

[private_archives]Lee found the Chromascapes an interesting idea to explore, but not particularly satisfying. Perhaps the most important feature of the exploration was that it led her to create horse sculptures that come alive when colorful paint skins are attached to their scrap metal frames.

I like to think of them as being like abstract paintings that have jumped off of the canvas to become 3D figurative works……

sustainable energy

My guy is a sustainable, renewable energy expert – he is my mentor in all things related to renewable energy.  This morning he took one look at my weary face and announced that in his expert opinion the only way for me to renew and sustain my energy was for me to cut my blog week short and rest. I’m going to find some sun, some lemonade, some light summer reading, and my good man. Renew. Refresh. Replenish.
