Abstract painter Su Knoll Horty’s newest exhibit Color Pops Two opens at the Christina Cultural Arts Center next month.
The show, which is a follow up to Color Pops, shown last summer in Wilmington's Mezzanine Gallery, explores sudden bursts of paint with colors evolving into one another.
"You know starting out with a blue/grey evolving into a softer blue, (then) into a bolder blue," Horty said.
Starting with a layer of oil paint, she said she paints from an abstract canvas in her mind, like a deep pool eddy. She then skims, stacks and blends colors with a rubber tipped stylus, or as she calls it “drawing into wet paint.”
Color Pops Two features 11 paintings. It will be at the Christina Cultural Arts Center in Wilmington May 5 - 29.
