FULL COMMUNION drawings
Opening Reception - Sunday March 11, 2018 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM
By appointment through April 2, 2018 contact leenowellwilson AT gmail.com
Through large scale drawings and paintings, Lee Nowell-Wilson investigates relationship, vulnerability and identity, as she herself navigates different life processes involving growth, womanhood, movement and responsiveness. Nowell-Wilson's realistic and technical style of working with the figure conceptually examines and divulges aspects of humanity kept behind the neatly tied, well packaged, professionally presented self.
"Full Communion", a new body of work that primarily uses graphite and charcoal, specifically explores growth and relationship through the lens of motherhood's first year. Created in conjunction with the artist becoming a mother herself, each drawing on paper invites the viewer behind the curtain to witness a series of messy revelations taking course.
Nowell-Wilson earned her BFA in Painting from the Maryland Institute College of Art. She has exhibited work in Annapolis, New York, Chile, England and Italy. As well, she has completed a 1 year long artist residency in Annapolis, MD, and a 5 month long urban arts residency in Lyon, France. She currently lives in Baltimore with her husband and 1 year old daughter.
