New Hampshire artist Deborah Lloyd Kaufman is the second exhibiting juried artist in the Summer Artist Series at the Rocky Neck Gallery. Her show titled To Tell the Truth will consist of several large abstract paintings in acrylic. This exhibit opened this Thursday, June 28 and runs until July 17th.
“The first truth is the subject matter of my painting, the event happening on the surface of the canvas: the interaction of color, line and shape.As each painting develops it become something more.The composition starts to unfold, the painting points to a truth in everyday life: that which lies beneath the surface is very much a part of the whole but not obvious.”
Kaufman states, “I have always been interested in archetypal folk tales, myths and stories about universal human concerns.I have long been inspired by the art of “primitive” people and children’s art.I am drawn to the unpolished, to rough edges, to the energy of the spontaneous line that comes from a deep true place.”
For 24 years Kaufman was an art educator in the Keene Public Schools and an adjunct faculty member at Keene State College and Antioch-New England for ten years.She has exhibited and sold throughout the Monadnock region of New Hampshire.Her work, which is in private collections across New England, New York and California, includes not only her acrylic paintings but also linocuts, ceramic tiles, and canvas floor cloths. Kaufman’s studio is located in Spofford, New Hampshire.
