Colleen Reynolds: Figuratively Speaking

Some painters prefer to make the natural landscape their primary subject. Some painters take on the challenges of the human form. And some painters—like Colleen Reynolds—create a unique melding of the two, turning images of people into a kind of impressionistic human landscape.

The new exhibit Figuratively Speaking collects the results of Reynolds’ joined-atthe-hip relationship with her sketchbook, where she gathers a unique variety of images. The people in the oil and watercolor works are sometimes friends, sometimes family members, sometimes complete strangers. Yet they all demonstrate a vibrant, lively sense of their subject (“Moto Boy” is pictured above). Perfect likenesses become less important than framing the characters in the middle of a human moment, whether active or contemplative. Stop in during your next trip to the Main Library and get a peek at the way Reynolds cuts her slices of life.

Colleen Reynolds: Figuratively Speaking @ Art at the Main, 210 E. 400 South, 801-209- 3062, Feb. 16 – March 13.
