Ann Pickett and Charlene Nield inhabit what they call an abstract state of mind in this dual show: “a focus on bringing to the surface in painterly elucidation a sense of internal freedom expressing a moment, a place, a lingering memory.” Ann Pickett’s new paintings depart from figures or landscape in ways that “often appear improvised or unrehearsed – a flurry of paint, gestures and expressive marks not to be repeated,  while other works are more serene in tone, focused on form, rhythm and color.” Charlene Nield has recently begun to work abstractly but preserves a continuity with her earlier figurative style.  With a strong focus on mood and color, she says, her new paintings “evoke a memory or longing for a time or place yet to be fully defined or discovered.”
