FIRST FRIDAY in Skippack Village: CONTEMPORARY ARTIST - Lee Muslin / Gallery Opening July 5th 2013

Contemporary Artist Lee Muslin

Lee Muslin is an explorer constantly discovering new ways to create.  She has an intuitive, organic approach to art making whether she is creating photomontages, mixed media collages or abstract paintings.  Transparency and layering plays a major role in all her artwork.  Color, rhythm and texture are the supporting concepts.

Lee attended the University of Delaware as a fine art major and subsequently received a degree in photography from Parsons School of Design.  Over the last 19 years, she has participated in over 200 exhibitions throughout the United States, as well as several other countries, including 13 solo shows.  Lee’s artwork has been in several museum exhibits including the Bergen Museum in New Jersey and the Attleboro Museum in Massachusetts.  She has been privileged to receive 20 awards and her work has been featured in 26 publications including the cover art for two Philadelphia Stories magazines and a book of poems.

To develop something visually intriguing out of pure imagination is the pinnacle of creativity.  Kandinsky stated, “Of all the arts, abstract painting is the most difficult. It demands that you know how to draw well, that you have a heightened sensitivity for composition and for color, and that you be a true poet. This last is essential.”

Guided by intuition, a fusion of gesture and geometry flows out onto the canvas in my abstract paintings. Although I begin my work with a basic composition and color scheme, I yield to what is happening in the painting as it develops. However, many subjective considerations and decisions are required to discover the painting's potential.  A back-and-forth between spontaneity and intention characterizes my approach.  To create a complexity of pattern and texture, I incorporate elements of collage in the layers of acrylic paint.  The juxtaposition of muted with intense color and transparent with opaque areas elaborates on the visual dance.
