Shimmer: Paintings by Denise Driscoll

Opening Reception: 6 to 8 pm, Thursday, February 28, 2019

Norwood, MA– In Shimmer, Denise Driscoll presents paintings that explore interconnection with brightly colored, darkly tangled surfaces at The Wall Gallery at Percival Brewing Company February 23 to April 5. An opening reception will be held Thursday, February 28 from 6 to 8 pm.

Denise Driscoll’s paintings are expansive accumulations of mark, line and form that often include metallic and iridescent colors that shift and shimmer in changing light. Her process is meticulous and meditative, generating unplanned compositions that emerge as each added layer obscures and illuminates what lies below. Driscoll’s interest in inner space, meditation, and mystical experience is fueled by a lifetime of reading magical realism, speculative fiction and folklore. Her paintings are thresholds, liminal spaces that connect the visible world with the unseen. She writes “I hope to create moments of possibility and connection to our own untapped potential, to capture that deep breath taken before jumping into cold water or plunging into the unknown.”

Driscoll is a SOLO2017 winner at Bromfield Gallery and her paintings and collaborative projects have been shown throughout New England. She is represented by Fountain Street Gallery, teaches at Lesley Art + Design, and maintains a studio at the Norwood Space Center.
