LOCAL CHICAGO ARTIST TO RELEASE A SERIES OF PAINTINGS INSPIRED BY THE ENDURING EARTH
Local artist Jane Michalski will release a series of 12 small encaustic paintings on panel sized 10 x 12 inches that imaginatively refer to the structures of stone and bedrock. Each painting will present as an abstract design meant to spark the imagination of the viewer and connect them to our planet.
There is a growing awareness of the impact of climate change and of human reliance on the earth. Covid-19 and changes in weather patterns have left us with feelings of helplessness and uncertainty. People must find ways to strengthen their emotional bonds to the earth in order to save it.
Michalski states: “I am creating a series of small works that draw on themes I explore in my art: the structures of stone and bedrock that recall the enduring earth; the foundation of human existence. I want to spark the viewers imagination so that they can feel the presence of the past, our future, and their connection to our planet.”
