Artist Ashley Armistead

In the artist's own words: "I paint to capture something of the elusive and unseen in a tangible space. In the natural world, I see evidence of fracture and decay, but also of beauty and transcendence. This tension shapes my process. My painting is a prayer of sorts, a wrestling with the hope that beauty and light can happen in the space around our wounds and brokenness. Landscape inspires my lines, compositions, and colors, however my work is referential rather than specific. From intense mark marking to building subtle translucent layers of light, I search for a balance that captures something enduring, while honoring the labor involved in the transformation process."
