“True North: Abstract Expressionist Collage”

Exhibition Dates: Nov. 15, 2014 — Jan. 10, 2015

Opening Reception: Saturday, Nov. 15, 2014

Artist, author, illustrator and workshop instructor Lynne Perrella presents a new body of Abstract Expressionist collage at The Chamber of Commerce Gallery in Hudson, NY. After spending thirty years as a graphic designer and illustrator specializing in corporate communications, Perrella became immersed in creating visual art journals as a way of exploring new, unfamiliar, untested ideas in her studio. During the process, she not only became a proponent of art journals (which resulted in her first book “Artist Journals & Sketchbooks”) but she also established herself as leading voice in the realm of collage. A portfolio of her collage work was featured in “Masters/Collage: Major Works by Leading Artists ”, a compendium of leaders in mixed media. She has written a total of five books on collage and mixed-media, and hosts creativity workshops throughout the United States and abroad.

“True North: Abstract Expressionist Collage” is an exhibit of all new work; representing many of the visual elements that have interested Perrella since childhood... including lavish color, mysterious shapes, layers of composted/found papers, and expressive mark-making. This exhibit is her first exploration into all-abstract images, and is part of a lifelong dedication to exploring new ideas. She continues to use her art journal as her “laboratory ” where new concepts are investigated, refined, then channeled into framed works of art and/or published in books and articles.
