Central Ohio artist Abby Feinknopf exhibits a new collection of acrylic paintings at Highline Coffee Art Space in Worthington in September and October. An artist reception is scheduled for Saturday, September 8, 2-4pm.
Always enamored with patterns, especially those found in nature, Feinknopf often incorporates them in her work in one way or another. A proponent of recycling and re-purposing, she sometimes includes the interior sides of security envelopes and other ephemera in her art due to the characteristics of their unique patterns. She recycles her paint as well, using the remaining acrylics on her palette to begin new art. As a result, she’s usually working on several pieces at a time, building layers upon layers as foundations for new paintings.
“I’ve been told that my paintings make others happy and that my color choices bring joy,” Feinknopf admits. “That’s what I strive for. I want my art to bring encouragement to others.”
