01 Dec Nicole Kutz Introduces us to paintings by artist Seana Reilly
I first encountered Seana’s work when I was in grad school at @whitespace814 right when I had started painting with indigo. I remember being absolutely blown away by her abstract worlds and saw so many parallels to what I was beginning to create with my work. She also saw my work at @scaddotedu and felt the same way. I have had the privilege of staying in touch with her throughout the years and even acquired a piece of hers through an artist trade!
Seana’s paintings have always had a beautifully introspective effect on me. I feel instantly transported to another realm in my psyche that feels both calm yet foreboding. I love how she taps into our complex relationships and reactions to nature through a meditative and abstract process. While I am forever a fan of her black and white palette, I also am so intrigued by the hues of color that seep into her pieces.
I would love to hear what you see in Seana’s pieces – let me know in the comments below!
