Two Hummers in Gold and Rose

2017

About

Carolyn Reynolds: Golden Inspirations Carolyn Reynolds is a brilliant innovator. The quasi-abstract canvases she creates from her Laguna Beach based Studio are put together using countless foils of thin gold leaf. Layer upon layer, the foils are applied to create a shimmering surface on which the artist places hummingbirds, waves, horses and tumultuous ocean scenes. The vibrant gold and silver of Reynolds’ work offers an image of celebratory splendor. Using a traditional process in a very contemporary fashion, Reynolds' golden canvases juxtapose subject and space in such a way that challenges our assumptions about the obligatory flatness of abstraction. Carolyn Reynolds paintings are on view at our gallery in Palm Desert and Laguna Beach. Legends say that hummingbirds float free of time, carrying our hopes for love, joy and celebration. The hummingbird’s delicate grace remind us that life is rich, beauty is everywhere, every personal connection has meaning.
