"Shadows & Reflections"
The Blue Whole Gallery looks forward to showcasing its guest artist, Barbara De Pirro, for the month of March with an exhibit of her artwork entitled "Shadows & Reflections". A painter, sculptor, installation artist as well as an educator, Barbara looks upon Nature as a open door that invites the artist to combine various elements of color, surface texture and mediums. With her expertise in acrylics, she stretches and expands the use of different elements so that what is created can be seen anew in an artistic format. Take part in this exploration and view the artwork of Barbara De Pirro as seen here and at the Blue Whole Gallery on March 6th, 2015 from 5 to 8 pm. and throughout the month.
Using her expertise in acrylics, Barbara expands her range by incorporating reclaimed materials of plastic, paper and thread by cutting, shaping, sticking and weaving these elements together creating shapes and forms different from their original existence and use. Her art work aims to make people think and reflect on their relationship with the environment and their attitude towards reclaimed materials.
Much of Barbara De Pirro's art is composed of recyclables that she transforms into organic forms. These transformations expands her palette and incorporates multiple mediums and techniques. She also explores the printed image revealing textures and patterns by transferring images without a press, using water based medium, acrylic paints & slow drying methods. The results are seen here.
What a refreshing world of art Barbara De Pirro offers the viewer. It is an adventure into diversity that allows an artist varied techniques using textile, fiber, paper, found objects and acrylic paint expanding the realm of creativity. Share in this exploration of "Shadows & Reflections" in art revealing the artist's message. Visit the Blue Whole Gallery on First Friday March 6 from 5 to 8 pm. where Barbara De Pirro & her artwork will be presented.
The Artist welcomes your contact including interviews.
