Donna Orme to demonstrate experimental print making

Filed under: Meetings on April 1, 2008 6:15 pm

Donna Orme is an experimental artist. She works from vaguely felt thoughts and feelings that are expressed in the colors and forms which emerge through her art. The cast acrylic monotypes incorporate an interplay of space, color, circles and lines. Acrylic pigment is applied directly to polyethylene plates. Inspired by emotional experiences from another time and place, she begins to make unusual, curvilinear marks looking for what works. The lines vary in size from thick to thin; irregular shapes are small, medium and large. Each layer of paint can be viewed from the back side of the polyethylene plate to see its development. She visualizes what will show as the first layer versus the additional layers when the monotype is pulled from the plate. Eye-catching images have a sense of movement and spontaneity making them playful, lively and energetic.
