Language Based Paintings


It's so heart warming to read the very simple and straight forward Artist Statement of Rebecca Woodhouse. I too, have often felt like there was so much that I wanted to say(in a painting) and yet wanted my thoughts to remain private. Her Statement really struck a chord with me. This truly is a case of "art as therapy".


And yet her work is so much more than that. We're so used to abstracts that originated with visual imaginations and here we have beautiful, meditative paintings that have been constructed solely from language. These thoughtfully made jewels tantalize us with their mystery.

Both images are from her Website, where her Studio Shots give you a peek at the process.
