"Lea Carmichael: Small Abstracts"

Artist’s Statement

Over the years I have worked in several media and genres—pastel still-life and landscape, hand-colored photography, expressive drawing of migraine(resulting in the publication of “The Migraine Book”), and more. One genre that I have worked on all along, “on the side”, is abstraction.

A few years ago I decided to go at abstraction headlong. It has been an exciting challenge.

My objective is to free the visual experience from a narrative, so that all that is left is the abstract. I do not give my works descriptive titles; instead, I label them by date.

The works here were all done in January, 2021. Trying to get past a dry spell I committed to creating at least one work every day. I continue on in that discipline, and it has been a good journey so far.

I welcome you to visit my website: Leacarmichael.com.  You may contact me there or at my email: Paintmoth@gmail.com. I’m on Instagram at Leacarmichaelart.

Note: all works are 6 x 6” unless noted otherwise.

All works are on watercolor paper, done in gouache, watercolor, cut paper, crayon, colored pencil, pencil, ink, and acrylic.
