Donise English
Hostess (Contemporary Abstract Painting on Panel in Dark Brown with Orange Grid)

2012

$1,800

About

16 x 16 x 2 inches encaustic on square wood panel HOSTESS is an abstracted painting in rich encaustic (pigmented wax) on wood panel. A dark, cross-hatched pattern is overlaid with a bright orange grid. Donise English is well known for her quirky shapes that, as implied by the titles, take on structures like barns or houses pitted against a backdrop, or bizarre alien figurative shapes outlined by the horizon. This artist's abstract geometric designs resemble architectural drawings or maps. Her fascination with constructed patters extends into her latest body of work that draws inspiration from quilts and the hands - on process in which they're made. The artist received her MFA from Bard College and is currently a Professor of Studio Art at Marist College in Poughkeepsie, NY. Artist Statement: I am interested in drawing and collaging multiple layers of information that refer abstractly to maps, architectural drawings and blueprints or patterns and structures found in such things as roller coasters, power lines, and fences. I use gouache and collaged paper in a series of layers that are a visual and ideological response to the previous layer to define my pictorial space. For each piece, I create a set of rules to follw about the use of a limited palette, a grid format, opacity of paper and whether a piece may include curing lines or maintain a rectilinear struture.
