Eileen Pleasure
The Pleasure of Color - Abstract Paintings



Exhibition:
Friday, March 27, 2020-Saturday, April 25, 2020


Artist Statement:

So many things can take us away from awareness of ourselves, especially in these times that we live in. Painting allows me to break free from the constant onslaught of information, the duties of life, the daily routines, and allows me space to digest and reflect on individual moments in my life as opposed to experiences being quickly buried by what comes next.  

With a background in Psychology, my interests lie in the emotionality of life and my paintings generally serve as an abstract, visual diary. Through the solitude nature of the painting process, I am able to take a moment to quiet my mind, to take a time out, to disengage my body from its usual daily routine, i.e. paying the bills, doing the dishes, shopping at Wegmans. Painting serves as my church, my quiet place, my playground, my confessional and my boxing ring, as there are times the painting and I violently fight each other and there are other times when we play nicely together. 

Through color and the physicality of the paint application, I am able to let feelings and thoughts come to the surface. My process includes laying the canvas directly on the floor and applying paint with my hands/rags/brushes while moving around the piece, resulting in work which emphasizes color, texture and the physical act of painting itself.
