DESCRIPTION

Acrylic on canvas | 2022

Led by movement, Culver’s new collection of 11 works mirrors a contrast of flow and sharpness that has been evolving the artist’s life path. Stopping points of memory reflection and severing anything that blocks new growth, the contrasted two-tone pieces are a demand to pause and absorb. These pieces then lead into an abstract expressionist approach to unplanned flowing marks and shapes. For Culver, this marks an important turning point in trusting her process and allowing the experience of painting to lead itself with an automatic drawing hand. There is a cradling of gentle placement of marks and arbitrary liquid flows of paint. In full, these works are akin to trusting outcomes before a known direction.

“...remain true to myself. To make work that is undeniably me and uniquely my own. I hope to make things that move people, but if I make work just for others without putting myself in it, it won’t carry.”

JANELLE LLOYD ON MARLEIGH CULVER

“Marleigh Culver is a favorite artist of mine that Tappan features. I loved the name of this piece for my daughter’s eventual bedroom. It’s the question I ask myself pretty much every day when I look at her.”
