MARIA FERNANDEZ GOLD

The Saturated Palette
March 10 - March 30, 2017
Reception: Thursday March 16, 2017 6-8 PM

The paintings of Maria Fernandez Gold are characterized by her emphatic use of bold color and encaustic texture, which work alongside one another to produce emotional and expressionistic pieces. 

Most of the works shown here are part of Gold's most recent "Blooms" series, inspired by fields of flowers seen out her car window while visiting New England. Gold’s pieces typically incorporate many different types of media. However, for the "Blooms" series, she used only encaustic wax, creating impressionistic swaths of color with stamps, heat, and brushes. 

Many of Gold's other works, including "Old Glory," are more political in nature, drawing from her experiences living and working in Washington, DC. No matter what she paints, Gold's work is indelibly tied to her personal feminism and is drawn from a global perspective.

The daughter of artists, Gold associates paintings with a sense of belonging and home, and she strives to create works that might bring people the same comfort.
