theStudio Artist of the Week…

Lulie Wallace, Painter, Charleston, SC

Artist Statement: In my life, I find myself attracted to the aliens around me.  These aliens are not the kind that travel to earth in UFOs, but are the objects that, at first glance, appear to be everyday objects, but upon a closer look, are distinguished by uniqueness and character.  If I am purchasing something that is going to be a part of my everyday life, I seem to gravitate towards furniture, clothing, jewelry, and art that have a bit of an alien quality to them.  They look as though they’ve been plucked from somewhere else, but feel at home in my life.

My aliens take form in a lime green tabletop, a magenta shadow, or in vibrant teal greenery.  A painting of flowers in a vase is an obvious subject matter to most collectors or observers, but what I want my art to achieve through color, shape, and texture is the balance of uniqueness, character, and honest materiality.
