Angela Burson: Paintings and Needlework

Bath, Oil on panel, 8" x 10", $300 (sold)

Okay, don't even try to buy this tub because it has been sold (to me).  SCAD alumna Angela Burson's little painting made my heart soar with its gradated stripe-y floor and claw foot tub.  The warm colors and simplicity are so appealing, I wish I could climb right in.
Ah....that would be lovely just about now.

"My current body of work links elements of color and pattern with random images to create a feeling of memory and narrative within the paintings.

I use a straightforward, simple composition, which is constructed featuring 
details of people, various objects or possessions."

The subjects come from a personal collection of source material consisting of family photographs, photographs and reproductions of tin toys, portrait miniatures, remnants of doilies, pillowcases, and towels from my family’s closets.

This personal inventory reoccurs in my paintings and needlework.  
I simplify the ground into patterns or a solid color, 
which allows an ambiguous place for the subject to inhabit.

The colors and patterns play an important role in 
invoking a specific mood and situate the objects in space.

The colors chosen are inspired from old color photographs, vintage color schemes, and filtered through my personal aesthetic."
