Burnt Skies / Jim Lalumondier
August 9th – 14th
Reception: Thursday, August 9th – 6:00pm-9:00pm
Description: The show will be landscapes (Low Country Marshes) created on found wood, painted with acrylic, and color atlered by torch. Found wood pallets are used for obvious pun relationship to the artist palette. The marsh scene is used as it is where I believe my close friend Cely Davis has found her Heaven. Cely past 6 years ago from breast cancer. Fire from the torch is used to alter color and texture. this is to represent caurterizing used in surgery, and it deals with the metaphoric image of a phoenix – rising from the ashes. In addition, a preview of my next show will be displayed. Three images from the upcoming nude series Phoenix Figures will be displayed as the preview.
As usual, a portion of the procedes go to the Share Our Suzy foundation, which supports people in their battle against breast cancer.
