Benefit v.15 Wins Back the Winter with Landscaped Light

At Benefit v.15, Win Back the Winter with our annual silent art auction and fundraiser. InLiquid invites guests to Crane Arts on Saturday, February 7 for a winter beer garden, heated and tented to beat back the winter chill. In lieu of the stars, nighttime dazzle will be provided by colorful LED trees donated by Hoffman Design Group.

The local, small business hails from Folcroft, PA, but they raise the green thumb to over 350 clients in Philadelphia, suburban Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, and New York City. A previous sponsor of InLiquid’s Benefit, Hoffman’s 25,000 square foot facility is now home to an installation by Leah Reynolds, who donated the piece to Benefit v.13.

The Hoffman team can be found putting Mother Nature’s stylist to shame around the city, at venues like The Union League of Philadelphia, The Bellevue, The Shops at Liberty Place, The Wanamaker Building, and the PHS Pop-Up Gardens. There they sculpt the brick and mortar of buildings into soft and supple life with exterior landscaping, or pump a heartbeat back into interiors with floral arrangements and holiday displays.

The intentional physicality of my paintings is as much a result of my dialogue throughout the process as it is the means with which I invite viewers to experience the work viscerally. Iconography may be the entry point for viewers, but the essence of the elements and ambiguity demand individual interaction with each painting. Layering is both revealing and concealing, creating a balanced tension and suspension which is really what painting is for me. I use the elements to speak for me and I wish to open doors to new dialogue within and between viewers.

Colorful, minimalist  still-life paintings created with a palette knife, which leaves a distinctive texture.  Incisions and scrapings, along with pencil and oil pastel marks, trace the creation of the work over time. Light and shadow are key elements in these abstracted scenes of everyday life.  Working over multiple sessions result in traces of previous versions and iterations which allow the viewer to engage in the work on multiple levels.
