Mize Gallery presents:

play : news works by Andrea Pawlisz

Having had a wonderful, playful childhood in the late sixties/early seventies, I have painted the games and activities I loved as a child: riding bikes, hopscotch, baseball.  Each painting illustrates a figure in grayscale paired with colorful complementary background elements. All main figures are brush painted, with all the other elements spray painted.  A limited color palette lends continuity, along with the use of the same font and spray treatment throughout.

The grayscale of the painted figures represent us as children, uncolored by outside influences, pure, black and white. The spray painted elements surrounding the figures, while authentic to me, represent external influences which mold us into who we are as adults.

Widening the scope of my canvas art, there are several 3D pieces: lunchboxes, paper airplanes, a rocking chair, a lap desk and a swing. Like the paintings, they are painted combining brush and spray.  

My hope is that the viewer will have a sentimental memory of a time or place when they felt happy. Presenting this work is to remind us all the importance of play.
