Abstract artist and former Seabrook Island Artist Guild president Colleen Wiessmann is the featured artist for July 2018. Her work will be on display at the Lake House art gallery from July 2 through the end of the month. Colleen says that creating an abstract piece of art is not just a matter of throwing paint on canvas, but a melding of experiences, creative instincts, and innate abilities.
Working from her Seabrook studio, she creates acrylics using collage and layering techniques. Her emotions dictate the process: laying paint on textured canvas, changing shapes and colors, scrubbing out and repainting until the canvas evolves into a harmonious work of art, exquisite in its composition, balance and color harmony.
