New Work Added to Live ARC Salon

April 25, 2017

We are pleased to announce that Perched by Lorena Pugh has been added to the 12th International ARC Salon Exhibition.
“Like so many artists before me, I relish painting the womanly pear. It is also a pleasure, when buying a pear, to find it wrapped in tissue. Over time these tissue wrappers became a major component of my work. There is something enticing about an organic form wrapped in translucent material. The nuance of how light filters through the diaphanous wrapper with a seemingly endless variety of folds and wrinkles is fascinating. Then, the light bounces off the pear bringing warmth or coolness with it to move again through the wrapper. It is a great delight for the eye. This piece, Perched, was a commission for a woman who has an affinity for birds. I had no intention when composing this painting to mirror her love of birds, but upon completion, I noticed it seems poised for flight.” – Lorena Pugh
