This May 4th Artist Reception will be a celebration of surviving cancer for Stuart Stein. “As soon as I could paint again, I did. Painting was enthralling and exhilarating, as much as it ever had been. It was truly exciting to place every brushstroke…The process of painting actualizes some part of the self that needs to observe, to calculate and to act intuitively, and with exactness. It’s a materialization of capacities, abilities and gestures. Yet, more importantly, it is as if each stroke is a breath and as though each painting is a record of my breathing, or my being alive.” Stuart invited Bridgette to exhibit and celebrate with him. As a mixed media artist, she combines her photography with encaustics to create a bridge between two worlds, the real and the reconstructed.
