Chris Flory "Induced Labor" Paintings

July 2 -27, 2013

Meet the Artist: Friday, July 5, Gallery Hop, 7 - 10 pm

Artworks Gallery presents "Induced Labor," an exhibit by Chris Flory of acrylic abstract paintings on panels.

“Induced Labor” refers to the difficulty of bringing art into the world. These paintings consist of many thin layers of acrylic paint on poplar panels. They begin with an idea expressed by the title, as well as a visual idea such as color or form. After that, Flory says, "the creative process is intuitive, with unanticipated results. The true subject matter is paint."

Chris Flory was born in Philadelphia and has lived in Winston-Salem since 1988. She has a BFA in Printmaking from Philadelphia College of Art, and an MFA in Painting from UNC-Greensboro. She has been a member of Artworks Gallery for 20 years.
