Watercolor, mixed media, pen and ink: The Common Cup.

  community member   < less Negative painting in watercolor

This summer, our walls will feature the artwork Deb Guidot.
Deb Guidot's work reflects a love of transparency and a fascination with light dancing across surfaces. It vacillates between showing the beauty that surrounds us and a satirical look at humanity's interactions with it. Her fascination with surfaces combined with a tongue-in-cheek look at the world has produced works that are not necessarily what they appear to be. Utilizing a variety of media including watercolor, pencil, ink, forged steel, stone and clay she creates both two and three-dimensional works. Deb states, "Using layers, transparency and negative space, combined with intent takes you beyond the surface of objects."
