Gallery Showing - Misty Mawn

I don't even know where to begin with Misty's art work. If Chagall ever had a love, an inspiration, the one that would make him go Ahhh! it is Misty. Her work is both stunning and deeply spiritual which is sadly lacking in a lot of modern art. She is not afraid to show her softer feminine side, instead she chooses to embrace and celebrate the things which make women unique and special. They are very politically incorrect, but not in the borish sledge hammer to the forehead fashion that has become popular. She is too clever for that choosing to be more subtle. Don't look at her pictures too quickly, stop a moment and really look at what she is doing and you will find beneath the surface all those qualities which I have mentioned. Like a fine glass of wine it is meant to be savored, not gulped down for the next glass.

The top one is my favorite. The face reminds me of how I feel without coffee. :-)

I am so glad you reveiwed Misty, and I think you've described the essence of what her work communicates so well! I am always touched and entranced when I look at her beatiful mixed media pieces...she has created her own personal mythology that resonates with so many people. Even on a purely visual level, her work is both lovely and compelling, but as you said...looking closely offers so much more. :>

That is why I chose her work, abstract but well thought out.

My favourites are the last two, the princess and the pillar and the mysterious person with the blue crown. They are very like Chagall. Have you come across the work of Cecil Collins, his stuff was quite like Chagall's too.

You really hit the nail on the head with Misty Mawn. The amazing thing is, not only is she incredibly creative and talented - but her art IS her soul. She is every bit as feminine, complex, deep, spiritual, and lovely as her artwork. When you meet her you are aware at once that here is an artist who savors life.
Thank you for recognizing her genius.
