These artists rebelliously represent real time, with keen affinities for the materials and the processes of painting. Believing in the value of the moment, they preserve it by committing it to paint and surface. Marks repeat across and within Michelle Marchesseault’s paintings, beating with a raw extemporaneous rhythm. Color drives her compositions, allowing harmonies to emerge without restraining discord. Julia Shirar paints from life and memory. She works closely with her subjects often in their own domestic spaces. Women dominate her current portraits.
