Artworks by Guadulesa Rivera
December 9, 2017 – January 6, 2018
Opening Reception, Saturday, December 9th, 7 – 10 pm, part of NELA Second Saturday
Guadulesa acknowledges the meditative aspect of creating art. Life events, people around her, Nature and the unseen world of energy, all play a part in her inspiration. Her abstract or loosely figurative works reflect spontaneity, strong rhythm, texture and color blends.
She often engages the resonant vibrations of music to focus in the moment and block out all discordant influences. She meditates with the 5 healing tones of her Tsalagi (Cherokee) ancestors and sometimes paints in live performance with jazz musicians.
We have learned that all form resonates with sound. Guadulesa utilizes sound as a secondary medium. Her artistic choices reveal a play of energy and rhythms. Often using a very wet palette, she feels that the sound environment influences the drying patterns of her paintings.
