Lyman Allyn Art Museum, 625 Williams Street, New London, CT
This exhibition showcases the work of CT artist Melissa Barbieri, highlighting a recent series of large-scale works on paper. Working in watercolor and India ink, we see the influence of the desert of the American Southwest on Barbieriís oceanic perceptions. Transcribing her visions in calligraphy and symbolism, Barbieri has recorded her stream of consciousness in an uninterrupted flow, often working late into the night. By combining text with symbols and imagery she has produced detailed, highly personal works of art reminiscent of codices or scrolls, containing elements of science and nature, history and literature, philosophy and spirituality, and resulting in a substantive body of work, inviting the viewer to explore her dreams and visions.
