|"Set Me Free, Why Don't You Babe?" by the Supremes (oil 10 x 8) by Judith Perry|
Perry says, “Art making requires passion. It's like dancing. It's something you feel and have to express. Having been raised in the staid southwest corner of the state of Washington, my life was isolated from the broader world. As a teen, I first heard the music of Motown…soul music. Soul music was an obvious display of passion and it expressed in word and sound what I felt about visual art. As I developed formally as an artist at the School of the Art Institute in Chicago, the emphasis was on figure drawing. To me the human form is the ultimate landscape. It carries undulating curves, sharp forms, and multiple colors. “
Indigo Fine Art Gallery will host a reception for Judith Perry on Friday, November 4 (5-8pm). Visitors to the show will witness the passion of soul music merged with the visual form. The titles of Perry’s new pieces reflect the moods of this expressive music.
