Art Display

Lena Owens Art

This month Roxbourough Library is happy to feature Artist, Lena Owens.

" I create thick, textured, and colorful, impressionistic oil paintings using just a palette knife. I have studied under various artists such as Leonid Afremov, Lyudmila Agrich, Kim McAninch, Dima Dmitriev and Nancy Medina. I love painting using the impasto technique - applying thickly textured paint, with bold brushstrokes and vivid colors. I also enjoy creating fresco style paintings, abstracts, photography and wood intarsia projects.

I believe the ability to perceive beauty brings inner peace and clarity. Beauty, Truth and goodness is one. Creation is possible when inner peace is attained. When this happens, it can manifest itself outside in different forms - including art. As author John Updike said: '...the artist brings something into the world that didn't exist before, and that he does it without destroying anything else.' Art transforms everything around it with its energy. It heals." - Lena Owens

Lena's art will be on display until September 30th.
