Poured Paintings, an exhibit featuring works by locally-based artist Felicity Nove will be on view at The Gallery at Edgemar Center for the Arts in Santa Monica, beginning Sunday March 4 through April 30.
An opening reception is scheduled from 2 to 5 p.m. March 4 at the Edgemar gallery, 2437 Main St., Santa Monica.
Nove described her technique for this exhibition, saying, “I see realism and abstraction as one and the same – differing only in personal focus and how one chooses to view them. The act of mark-making becomes the conduit that reconciles this duality.
“By eliminating the brushstroke I use gravity to create the line, veil or glaze, she continued. “Marks are produced by the passage of the vertical drip or horizontal pour. Through this process, I explore the physical nature of the material – the chemical interactions and viscosity of the paint – giving rise to the indeterminate flow.”
Nove received a bachelor of arts degree in visual arts from Sydney College of the Arts and a post graduate diploma from the Australian Film, Television and Radio School. She is a recipient of the prestigious Kenneth Myer Creative Scholarship Fellowship – a one-year’s residence in Tokyo, and the Art Directors Guild of America award for Excellence in Production Design.
In addition to her studio practice, Nove works on commercial projects for both film and television as an independent art director. Her artwork has been commissioned for several network shows including “Leverage” for the TNT network and “Better Off Ted” for FOX television.
She currently lives and works in Los Angeles, while also maintaining a studio in Australia.
