September 2005: Marcia Hindman Painting

Marcia Hindman will be offering her latest abstract paintings. Hindman has always centered on about ten different shapes that she continues to use in each painting, sometimes alone and sometimes as part of a repetitive pattern field. Images such as landscapes & architectural elements are only hinted at. Hindman uses the repetitive shapes to explore new colors and combinations of colors to create movement, rhythm, range, tension, and balance.  Her process of abstraction involves erasing lines, adding lines, covering up part of the shapes, and interlocking the shapes and lines. The result is an interesting composition with depth and uncovered surprises.  For this show she has both large and smaller canvases.
