Teri Dryden -- very nice art!

Went out with a friend last week for an art day, and we checked out the new show at B. Deemer Gallery in Louisville, with work by Teri Dryden.  I've been following her art for several years, since first discovering her collage work HERE.

Over the years she's moved more toward painting, first combining it with collage and then doing it pure, with a sensibility that reminds me of Cy Twombly, with smudgy text-like scribbles on dirty white backgrounds.

Teri Dryden, Raw #1

Teri Dryden, Raw #2 (this one is probably my favorite piece in the show)

She also showed several works that were kind of halfway between collage and painting, on irregularly shaped pieces of handmade paper.

Teri Dryden, Pink City

And in a throwback to the book-cover pieces that I fell in love with a long time ago, here were a couple of collages built on book covers:

Teri Dryden, Cherry Blossom #2

Teri Dryden, Cherry Blossom #3

The show will be up through July 5, and if you're anywhere near the Louisville area I'd highly recommend a visit!  Beautiful work.
