Audrey Stone – Line and color are two elements I have been occupied with for some time. Line defines shape in representation but in the real world they do not exist. In my current paintings I use broad and slender lines of color seeking to create visually vibrating images. The edge of each color becomes a line, or boundary, between neighboring colors although there is no line depicted.
Observing shifting color is an ecstatic experience for me. I am intrigued by transitions from one color to the next and the way the eye and brain process these transitions, informing the viewer’s emotional and physical response to the work. Color gradients have become a prominent element in my work. Through the perception of light and color in nature I often find myself feeling both excitement and calm simultaneously, producing a desire to bring this dynamic opposition into my work.
We all draw lines all the time! We draw a line to connect one thing to another. We draw a line when we have reached a limit, or to create a limit, or simply to discern this from that. We draw a line between right and wrong, here and there. We hold the line and warn our adversaries not to cross the line. A line can describe or define an object or a space. And a line can tie things together. It is quite remarkable how much a simple line can achieve. How does something that has no substance do so much? Through the varied and facile ways Audrey Stone, Yvette Cohen, Shira Toren, and Diane Englander employ a line we see how a line can define, unite, and blur the boundary between painting and sculpture.
