New work by Danna Ray is part of a two-person exhibition called Through the Woods at New Hampshire's Artstream Studios. A native of South Carolina, Ray "spent her days roaming the woods, fields, and creeks around her family's log cabin" and this influence is quite evident in her work. There is a tranquility to the paintings, even in the presence of rushing waters. Particularly compelling pieces are those in which remainders (and reminders) of everyday living settle onto the landscape, as though to take root.
Artist: Danna Ray
Through the Woods runs throughout the month of November 2011 at Artstream Studios in Rochester, New Hampshire.
