BETTINA CLOWNEY

I work between abstraction and realism.  It's only over months spent in one or the other that I better understand the conversation between them.

In figurative work I aim for a sense of presence. It will trump an exact likeness every time. I paint until it feels alive.

The watercolor drawings are minimal, open, and, I trust, enough. 

Collage is a way I sketch so there are elements that refer to that in my work.

I love maps, mythology, and archetypal images.
