Taking Shape
Bobbie Twydell Greiner

"Taking Shape is a selection of works where I focus on the art elements of shape, line and color to express the passion I have for my surroundings. Painting in a stylized way, I hope to provoke the viewer to see familiar subjects in a different way."

Young Artist Alcove:
Daisy Lopez

Artist statement:
My artwork explores the relationship between nature and freedom. Within each artwork there is visual representation of the outdoors.  In a variety of ways, the images seem to be restrained; the flower which comes from the heart seems to be captive in the bottle, the seasons are seen from an enclosed living space, and the word "Bloom” was written in a monotone manner for the most part. Each piece however, finds a way to escape its captured form. It allows room in the mind for exploration. My passion for the outdoors is largely due to its lack of walls and obstruction. When you go out into a plain, you chose in which direction you will proceed.You feel relief from society's problems and obtain a better understanding of the inner self. Similarly, I want individuals to notice the restrictions but find the freedom that is held in nature.In order to emphasize this message the media used was grafite and papercut; techniques which had a precise and definite end. Some art pieces contain vibrant colors while others are plainly black and white. Those pieces which consist of color are meant to appeal to the beauty of the outdoors. Those without color are meant to be colored in as imagined in the individuals head.Most of society's time is spent inside walls using technology that in reality chains us down. For this reason people should utilize my artwork as an inspiration to seek natures beauty and freedom rather than being attached to materialistic things.
Through February 18, 2018
