Liz LaManche, “Sense of Magic”

Fri, Sep 10 - Thu, Oct 28 @ 12:00 am

Westford artist Liz LaManche opens the PCA Art Gallery’s new season with a show of new paintings, embodying hopes and dreams for a better world.

Artist Reception: September 19, 12-4 p.m.

“Each one is a spell, or a meditation” explains artist LaManche. “These paintings are about meditating on my true desires- for spiritual growth, for the world. We create reality by focusing our thoughts and intentions. In this series of recent work I’m visualizing our hopes and dreams, and creating symbolic representations- informed by street art, graphic design, blackwork tattooing, and the painting medium at hand. Each is the focus of a desire- but they also offered a chance for free association and free play. Many are also inscribed on the back with a “devotion”- other things the holder of the work can do to make that thing come about.”

 “I’m interested by the way humans use visual symbols to focus their intentions, speaking to the conscious and unconscious mind, to create reality. By holding our goals in mind, we begin the magic of creating a new and better world.”
