In Abstract Mind, Carol Massa presents colorful abstract paintings representing the visual journey that the artist experienced over the course of the year leading up to this exhibition. The abstract paintings vary from intricate and detailed with numerous colors and shapes, to simple blocks of colors. The resulting visual images mimic life in that some are dark and pessimistic while others are light and optimistic. The group of paintings are unified in their shape; all of the canvases are 20” x 20”. As the artist paints, she embraces how her process is a dialogue between her energy and the brushstrokes. Through painting, Massa strives to find a balance between opposite forces, be it chaos and order, or movement and stillness.
