Alice Norman Mandel
I relish the freedom to make art about objects I love. Whatever my subject matter – real or imagined – I enjoy the challenge of creating a series of pictures that revolve around the same subject, but vary in composition, line, color, perspective and media. Examples of works from two different series are shown here: “Rain Forest Foliage” and “Chair Shadows.”
I always look forward to starting with a blank sheet of paper and am engaged by how each mark I put down affects the next mark. In its history to completion each piece contains many trials, errors and variations.
