Welcome to Jacqui Fehl’s “PLAYcation”. This lively and eclectic show is truly a celebration of process, which for Fehl is a series of happy accidents coupled with an intentional final composition. Each piece starts out with a spontaneous application of diverse materials such as: acrylics, graphite, pastels, paint markers, hand painted papers or book pages. Nothing is off-limits.
Fehl loves creating art, but like many artists, she reached a point recently where she felt tired, uninspired, and a bit burned out. She needed to get away, but not in the literal sense. No luggage required for the creative holiday she had in mind; only some space, time and permission to explore. Then the creative dance of scraping back, sanding off and then layering back on begins. Individual realistic elements such as silhouettes, flowers, and photographs of windows and doors are added to the somewhat abstract surface to ground the final painting.She says: “This show was so much fun to create, I may never come home!”
This exhibit will be in the Jane Sandelin Gallery.
