This exhibition is open during North Portland Library's hours of operation.
Elizabeth Massa-MacLeod is a longtime NE Portland resident. She has worked as a curator, conservator and painter in the area since earning her MA in Art History from the University of York. The Floral Abstracts series grew out of purely abstract painting that began to take more concrete shapes. It celebrates the beauty and luxury of the everyday. It takes the traditional still life subject and abstracts and loosens it into explosions of color, energy and shape. The imagery is drawn from everything from Dutch Baroque masterpieces to Impressionism to cake decorating, combined into bursts of modern colors.
