PLAYA Presents | Marilyn Joyce + MaryAnn Puls
December 7, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
On Saturday, December 7, 2019, PLAYA will host its monthly installment of PLAYA Presents from 1 to 3 pm. Visual artists Marilyn Joyce and MaryAnn Puls will be sharing their stunning works in their studios.
BIOS: Paper, ink, beeswax, and thread tell the story of a place in Marilyn Joyce’s mixed-media
works. Residing in Portland, Oregon, her interest in the natural world, joined with a walking practice, provide parameters for her art. Direct observation combined with felt experiences leads to intuitive gestures, mark-making, and staining that become distilled through experimentation, to create abstract place-based compositions. Joyce received her BS degree from the University of Oregon and her post-baccalaureate degree from Oregon College of Art and Craft.
Artist MaryAnn Puls, creates paintings, drawings, and assemblages in various mediums. Her work follows its own script with results that seem familiar, enigmatically attractive and although abstract, projects a certain reality. A need to understand draws the viewer to look closer. Everyday visual stimuli and an arm-chair interest in natural science provide constant fodder and themes. Her eye is often drawn to the results of nature that have been redirected by human activity and is intrigued with tangible and invisible records of life. MaryAnn Puls lives and works in Portland, Oregon. Exhibitions include 9 solo shows, numerous juried, group shows and a Regional Arts & Culture Council grant.
