ART SHOW EXHIBIT
Opening Reception: March 13, 2020 6-9 PM
Exhibit: March 13 - April 3
Exhibited to critical acclaim in cities in the Southern states from Richmond to Atlanta to Jacksonville and Tampa. Richmond Times-Dispatch wrote in a review: “Prins’ mixed media works probe the notion of trauma and healing, destruction and rebirth. She slashes or burns her canvases, then repairs the wounds with wire stitches that branch off like waterways or coalesce surprisingly into crosses. She colors the canvases beneath the suture-like stitches with the bruised tinges of healing flesh, the blackened effect of a burn, the signals of pain that precede recovery, metaphors she naturally associates with life. Prins’ work voicelessly discloses a self portrait.”
In addition, The other series A Leaf in the Wind series will be on exhibit. Prins created during a residency in India in ’16/‘17 shortly after her son passed away. As if to dispel her sadness these paintings, images of Indian leaves in Sumi ink on a watercolor ground, are filled with color. Several are included in a book A Leaf in the Wind with her son Jaro ajer’s poems. Rose Marie Prins will read a selection of her son’s poems at opening on March 13. The book is available for sale .
