THE GREEK SERIES
Liz Hernandez Gallery is pleased to announce the exhibition of "The Greek Series" by renowned Tucson artist Don West. In this series of gesture paintings, West integrates vibrant color with free-style circular brushstrokes to create rythmic schemes that gyrate accross the surface of the canvas. Several paintings in "The Greek Series" bear names of Greek islands such as Naxos, Paxos and Delos. According to mythology, the isle Delos was the birthplace of Apollo and Artemis. "My work is no different than landscape or figurative work. I replace the brush mark or a series of brush marks, creating something tangible, timeless and universal," explains West.
