ON DISPLAY: "Fire and Water" by Brenda Gilliam
It’s summertime, with the suns fire in the sky and ocean waves dancing along the shoreline. This is my second summer in St Louis. I love this city, it’s home.
However, I do miss previous summers spent along the coastal lowcountry of South Carolina, home of my heart and soul.
These paintings, originals in acrylic and graphite on canvas, were inspired by barefoot moments on Folly Island SC.
A complement to the element of fire on the west side of this building.
About the Artist:
With an extensive background in graphic design and illustration, with an appreciation for the esthetics of mid-century to the 70s, and the tendency to interpret everyday moments and experiences in the subject matter of my paintings … I play with color, shape, pattern, texture, composition, balance, and movement in my work.More About Brenda Gilliam
