PAINTINGS

For the first time ever, Paradis will feature a series of large scale paintings.

 

These works exhibit a culmination of her intense process — starting with a vision, creating a maquette, finding the location, preforming or ‘living’ the scene, photographing, and then stepping back to realize the whole experience — where it is then expressed with paint on canvas.

The exhibition will include 7 large scale paintings. 

Below are the first 3 that are finished.

Process:

 

The artist dreams of a new reality1, which is then created with the intent to be experienced though a photograph2, or, ‘living the scene.’

 

This moment then becomes a memory, where it moves on to be deconstructed, and reasserted as pure color and form3.
