Ellyn Weiss: Circular Reasoning

October 4 - November 1, 2006
Opening Reception: Thursday, October 5, 6-9 pm

Weiss's pastels, oil bar paintings, and prints are characterized by layers of bold colors in overlapping abstract shapes. The shapes seem to morph into recognizable forms and then quickly fade back into abstraction. Weiss admires art that communicates directly with the viewer, without the need for rigid interpretation. Her work is meant to be evocative and somewhat inscrutable. It conveys emotion without the encumbrance of particular meaning; it bypasses the brain and speaks directly to the soul.
