Accretion

Charlie Milgrim 

The artist sees a world in flux, a world of perpetual change and transition, a constant building-up and a tearing down.  In these works Milgrim focuses her lens on the Accretive processes in our world that mimic the way of Nature and reveals beauty hidden in plain sight.    

After pallet clean ups, her Alameda High School painting students leave behind colorful residue that builds up, layer after layer, forming surreal imagery.

Statement- These paintings reflect my love and admiration of the beauty of our natural environment. I focused on the greenery and colors that I see in Berkeley during the Spring and Summer. When I paint, I combine intention and intuition, layering paint, brushstrokes, and mark making until the painting reaches fruition.
