ABOUT THE EXHIBIT:

Hawai’i painter Yvonne Manipon recently returned from a 2 week artist in resident program in France, an experience which greatly expanded her innate talents.

Manipon says “In this exhibition, there are paintings from my time in France and new paintings since returning with a greater focus on what I have learned.  One of my key goals during the residency was to explore a different way of working, to “go large,” to paint on location but bring my vision back to the studio and work in a larger format. I went from 9 x 12 and 12 x 16 panels to 48 x 60 paintings on canvas.   My goal was to paint with more emotional freedom, bigger gestures, thicker paint and abstractly. I want to bridge my love of abstract expressionism and direct painting with the contemplative nature of observational painting.  I began thinking about my paintings in a different way and asking myself how could I subtly shift my process of observation in nature. How might I capture the fleeting light, changing values and color over larger shapes and areas in the landscape into the studio?”

Her art will be on display through November 28th.
