Artist’s Statement 

various red, purple, black lines - artwork by Lois EbySince the early 80s I have been drawn to the empty, yet evocative spaces of Asian paintings and to the energies of African American improvised music.   I find in these traditions contemplation of the cosmic space in which we and the earth live, and engagement with the energies which give life passion.  

When I paint, I strive to keep the surface open, to give it air and breath, not to fill it up too much.  And then, within that open space, whether working with an abstract motif or one from life, I want my line and color to have energy, to create something alive, something that moves with rhythm and pulse. I want my paintings, whatever the subject, to have contemplative space and passion for life.
