Between 25-30 works by painter, printmaker and mixed media artist, Marc Schimsky, will be on view at the “A” Space Gallery, 37 West Bridge Street, New Hope, PA, from June 1-29, Wed-Sun 11AM to 8PM. Opening Reception will be held June 8, 6-9PM.

          Non-objective and figurative abstraction is a comfortable and familiar place for Yardley artist, Marc Schimsky. He delights in the intuitive and improvisational aspects of abstraction. Schimsky states, “To do an abstraction of any kind requires that an artist gives up control over outcomes; has a plan but is willing to change it.” Thus the title of his solo show, “Best Laid Plans” at the “A” Space Gallery in New Hope during the month of June. “Abstraction can be said to be a cerebral activity,” says the artist.

          Most of Schimsky’s paintings involve the use of oil paint that is mixed with a cold wax medium. What he enjoys most about the oil and cold wax process is the scraping, scratching and gouging of the layers of color. “This technique is very conducive to a primarily expressionistic style of painting,” Schimsky explains. “If I manage to convey in my works a certain sense of a moment lost or of an encounter missed, then I’ve accomplished a lot…I’ve achieved something mysterious and magical.”
