Hui No‚eau Visual Arts Center on Maui is proud to present its 2001 Solo
Exhibit featuring Lollie Groth and Nancy Skrimstad. This inspiring show
will exhibit a selection of mixed media, prints, paintings and drawings
by these whimsical adult artists.
I use painting as a way to get to a better place, a state of mind that
is uplifting; I hope that that gets translated in the viewing.‰ Lollie
Groth‚s states, For me, art can be that empty space, a space to have
fun in and a space to find relief from the machinations of the mind. For
the past five years I have done icon-like pieces, brightly colored
portraits of beings who I find inspirational. The work which I am just
beginning to do and which I want to do more of involves an emphasis on
process. So a piece might be a study of line, a meditation on line,
while another might be a meditation on meditating and would incorporate
a blown up two-dimensional page that would function as a painting. I am
a writer and like to use writing with my art work.
I am an artist who finds that when I finally master a certain technique
or subject matter, the challenge is gone and I get bored. When I reach
this stage I must shift gears and begin to push, struggle, and humble
myself into a new relationship with my art. The boredom starts to slide
into excitement as a new challenge emerges. I am very pleased to say I
am in the stage as I prepare for my upcoming show. My imagery is evolved
from the passionate side of my being. I do not know why I create what I
do but to be quite honest I don't want to know, what fun would that be?
