Oil Pastels on Sandpaper
Exhibit Dates: August 13 - October 6, 2008

Pamelinda O’Keefe’s show displays 30 prints depicting common objects enlivened with bold lines and bright colors. Inspired during a particularly gray day in February, O’Keefe felt compelled to create colorful images to counteract the dreariness of that time of year.

The result is a series of vivid landscapes, objects and animals created from oil pastels on sandpaper. According to O’Keefe, “I find it both challenging and fun to take an ordinary object and reduce it to its simplest form, to translate it to a primitive, sometimes whimsical, and boldly colored image.”
