Rosy Penhallow

I reside in the California Central Coast creating abstract wood sculpture and paper collage.  Having recieved an MFA in painting from UC Berkeley in 1983, my early work was influenced by the Bay Area figurative painters such as Joan Brown and Elmer Bischoff.  Over the years narrative scenes became more abstract.  As I moved shaped papers around to find a finished image in the collages, the work beckoned to be off the page and the three dimensional sculpture began.  The sense of play amidst the profound is always an active element in the art I create.  A more detailed bio is on my website.

Love Notes.  The images express a feeling of warmth and celebration within the presence of the unknown.  Abstract art often addresses this.  On each page is written a guiding word for the journey of love.  Hum.  Seek.  Revel.  Pause.  Risk.  Behold.  Befriend.
