Lori Field’s exhibit of spellbinding mixed-media paintings is on exhibit at Cumberland Gallery. The artist’s solo exhibition I Am Curious Yellow will be on display through October 13. Field’s psychological explorations feature anthropomorphic creatures in fantasy environments. Her materials are as imaginative as her subject matter. The artist weaves together layers of colored pencil drawings, antique lace, Dresden foil, sequins, and silk scarves. She combines these elements with encaustic painting and applies them to thin sheets of rice paper. What results are delicate, shimmering works with three-dimensional details. In her latest series, Field explores the color yellow. She explains, “The paintings allowed me to get up close and personal with the color and to create my own obsessive, yellow-fevered narratives.” Themes in Field’s work include female identity, loss, rebirth, politics, culture, and the environment. Air in Autumn, sculptures by Johan Hagaman, is also on view at Cumberland Gallery.
