Betty Jo Costanzo
Whisper Trees (quad) series of 4 paintings

2018

$11,000

About

A series of four abstract Impressionist water, trees and sky paintings with a minimal, clean feel that is awash with warm and cool tones. Betty Jo Costanzo immerses herself in coastal settings, taking in all of her senses: sight, sound, touch, taste, and smell. She records — via video and audio tape — crashing waves and light, which she later plays in her studio while she paints not only the appearance of water and sky, but the essence of her experience and time spent in the natural setting. The series of four paintings includes the following: Whisper Trees No. 1 - 36 x 28 inches Whisper Trees No. 2 - 36 x 28 inches Whisper Trees No. 5 - 24 x 20 inches Whisper Trees No. 6 - 24 x 20 inches When hung with 4 inches of space between the panels the outer dimension is 108 x 36 inches. The four paintings can be mung in endless ways. The four paintings create Costanzo's complete Whisper Tree's series of 2018 Each individual painting is pictured above. And the series is shown hanging together. Betty Jo Costanzo’s award-winning art has been described as “getting lost with a purpose” and “what a place would be like if you belonged there.” She says her influences range from John Cage to film director Alain Resnais, with the late and great Jay Defeo, her longtime mentor and friend, continuing to be the most significant. Her works are held in corporate, private and public collections around the world and her public exhibitions and residencies span four decades both regionally and internationally. Though she has lived on both coasts of the United States and in São Paulo, Brazil, and has worked and taught around the world, including England, Ireland, Italy, Spain, and Cyprus, the former associate professor at California College of the Arts now maintains a full-time studio practice based in Seattle, Washington. Wired and ready to hang. Framing is not required. Panel edges are clean and white.
