PAINTED TEXTILE, TRIP TO NASHER MUSEUM OF ART

"A-Frame"   10" X 10"  Lori LaBerge  2017

I opened the paint tubes again this week. To keep with my architectural work I started by painting a triangle and built from there, which led to the feeling of an A-Frame home. The architecture of the hooked background shows through creating structure. There is quite a bit of mystery as one looks inside the blue areas with what appears to be a figure near the center. I enjoy doing these in the moment and finding the mystery later.

We made a trip over to Durham to tour the Nasher Museum of Art. The museum is on the Duke University Campus and always shows work beautifully. Various rooms had paper available for those who would like to create sketches from the works on display. There were classes in progress throughout the museum. Just great to see so many people participating in what the museum offers.

Pete knew exactly what room I was headed for when we arrived. Enjoy the following works from the exhibit "Disorderly Conduct: American Painting and Sculpture 1960-1990".
