Quilt of Frugality

Lisa Sabo Brown's avatar Lisa Sabo Brown

This project began as a way to use paint left on the palette at the end of painting sessions. The result is a series of free-form paintings, studies in warm vs cool, contrast vs harmony, and texture. It celebrates individuality while coming together as a whole. And plays with the idea that even something seemingly insignificant can become something bigger than itself. A series of nine painting, each complete in itself, meant to be viewed together as one piece. When put together the frames, mats and negative space become part of the art. It resembles a colorful quilt, warm and familiar.
