Dallas Exhibition: Ray-Mel Cornelius: Inside and Out”. Norwood Flynn Gallery
Norwood Flynn Gallery invites you to join us during the 2013 DADA FALL GALLERY WALK ON September 21, 2013, noon-8pm. NFG will be featuring “RAY-MEL CORNELIUS: Inside and Out” (show continues through October 5). This exhibition features new paintings & drawings by Oak Cliff Artist Ray-Mel Cornelius. These “wild life” and “still life” paintings explore what he has seen while encountering nature, and what he has tried to bring home and live with in an attempt to recreate that experience. All shows are free and open to the public. The public may call 214-351-3318 or visit www.norwoodflynngallery.com, or www.dallasartdealers.org for information.
Artist’s Statement: “Ray-Mel Cornelius: Inside and Out- New Paintings”
Wild life, still life. Those two terms wouldn’t seem to have much in common except the word “life”. But they reflect two of my personal interests, the experience of nature and the impulse to collect and display.
We take our world out into nature, sometimes to its detriment, and bring the natural world in to recreate our adventures in it. This body of work explores what I have seen while encountering nature and what I have tried to bring home and live with in an attempt to recreate that experience. My usual interests in color, texture, composition and scale are also satisfied in the process of making paintings based on these considerations.
