Insider views

Artist and blogger Paul Behnke stopped by for a studio visit recently. We had a great conversation  about color and timing and the dance between rigor in my conceptual strategies and a conscious welcoming of aleatory occurances in my process. Then he took out his camera…and showed you things that I never would inside my studio…

Exhibition & Studio Updates

End of summer greetings!

I have 3 things to share with you:

Solo exhibition in Mantova, Italy : curated by Lucio Pozzi

Pocket Utopia Gallery : Session One, an exhibition

Summer has just begun… in my studio

Solo exhibition in Mantova, Italy

“Your works are just right for this space. I like the feeling of unobtrusively hanging delicate sheets of paper on big walls under ancient ceilings.” Lucio Pozzi, curator

“this space” is Palazzo Costa, a landmarked 16th century palace in Mantova, Italy. I met curator/artist Lucio Pozzi when he visited my studio in Otranto, Italy while I was on residency at the BAU Institute in June, 2012.

About the exhibition, which will occur on September 21st from 5-7pm:

MAT / tam
Manto Arte Temporanea
Temporary Art Manto

Annarosa Buttarelli and Lucio Pozzi display art every so often, suddenly, for brief moments and in varied sites, even art spaces.

These are exhibitions or events, things done by people we come to know, whom we ask to do something: friends, family, acquaintances, ourselves and especially many others. They are things to see, but then it also happens that there is stuff to read or listen to or touch or taste or smell.

Our events take place when they occur. They are announced by word of mouth or by email. Normally they last a couple of hours or a bit less. Rather than being linked to a program, the sense of this endeavor generates its meaning while it happens.

Pocket Utopia: Session One

Close up; painter Debra Ramsay embarks on an entirely new phase in her ongoing investigation into the language of color…” Austin Thomas, curator

September 8th – October 13th
Opening Reception: Sun., Sept 8, 6-8pm

Special Program Dates:
Sat., Sept. 28, 6:30–8:30pm, Debra Ramsay with Mark Golden, co-founder/CEO of Golden Artist Colors discuss color and paint.

191 Henry Street, NYC
Wednesday-Sunday 11am-6pm



Yellow Trail Summer ColorsThe start of summer…

My ongoing project, Yellow Trail (Time As Landscape), of tracking time over a year by collecting the colors of the landscape in a specific location continues on to its second phase; Summer. I collected the “summer” colors in mid-April and am working with them now. Thus, it’s now summer in my studio. Stay tuned for further developments…

Ongoing Project


Yellow Trail: A year in time and color that surrounds a place

I’m in the process of returning to a specific hiking trail once each season to document the
color change via photos. I’m using the change in color as a way to track time.

Using a virtual paint mixer program I select one color from each of the 18 photos I collect
during the trip. Then I mix the colors in actual paint, and create a series of paintings
using only those 18 colors, documenting the specific season and place.

The image at the top, Yellow Trail Spring, Colors As Found, shows spring colors
in the order I found them on the trail. ( 20 in x 30 in, acrylic on museum board)
