Brigid Watson is an abstract oil painter. She grew up in Kent, Ohio.
She has undergraduate degrees from The School of the Museum of Arts,
Boston and Tufts University. She obtained a Masters degree in Venice,
Italy through New York University. She has been in shows in Boston,
Provincetown, Denver, Los Angeles, Italy, and Toronto. She is represented
by a gallery in North Carolina.
Her work is characterized by heavily impastoed surfaces and a highly
personal use of color. She often explores color trends and how they reflect
social constructs such as anxiety, freedom, and power. For example, colors
prominent in contemporary society act as barometers of the social
climate. Likewise, colors in the natural world are barometers of environmental
stress and change in climate. Sometimes these worlds connect. We
have anxiety, for example, about climate change. What color is that ?
Lambert Savigneux was born in Pau (France) in 1963. He's a painter and a poet. He's passionate about languages, culture, reading and walking. Since 2006, he works as a librarian but his primary focus in writing poetry.
