When I made my day trip to Nashville, I first stoped at The Frist Center for the Visual Arts. Inside this large modern building was a group show entitled The Fragile Species: the New Art Nashville. The shows theme was “vulnerability of the body and the transitory nature of life.”
acrylic on canvas, 5" x 5"
One piece, in the show, caught my eye; it was called Especially Considering Exposure by artist, Barbara Yontz. When I made my dot painting I imitated hanging threads with my dots. My colors choices were influenced by the show as a whole. Many of the works had a medical feel to them. Not every show I see moves me to make art, but this one did.
