APRIL BENDING exhibits in MILAN
Canadian born April Bending, BOA Art Below competition winner, showcases her work in Milan this spring.
Visit the 'Cultural Contact' exhibition at the Atahotel Executive in Milan from the 1 - 31 March 2012.
April says: 'Painting from memory, not real life, allows me to filter out the non-essentials creating an abstracted image, evoking an emotional response.
I often use a limited palette to draw focus to that image in much the same way a black and white photograph creates focus, thus avoiding the distraction of a myriad of colours. Because colours do evoke emotions, I use simple monochromatic schemes to set the mood. Texture is central to my work, building ambiguities as images subtly appear (and disappear) through each additional layer, enticing the viewer to take a closer look'.
