Asymmetry #SPAF2020

Isenhour captures her emotional response to the landscape with a contemporary expressionistic style in both oil and pastel. While from a distance a first impression is the realistic feeling of the work, but a closer look reveals a contemporary edge where her mark-making controls the impressions of mass and delicacy. Participating in numerous plein air events throughout the year informs her studio work through the on-site study of value and color temperature as it can only be seen with the eye. Observation and her degree in Geology afford her a deep understanding of the landforms and the bones of the earth that allow her to so effectively convey the depth and mass of her subjects. You will find her work hauntingly unpopulated as she tries to convey the emotion of place while leaving you alone in your thoughts.

This work is part of the 16th Annual Sedona Plein Air Festival – a festival unlike anything that we have ever done before! A first-of-its-kind, an all-woman festival, presented completely online October 24 – 31, 2020.

Each artist will be sending in work from their own diverse locations for presentation in the Arts Center’s online Gallery. At the conclusion of the festival week, well known plein air artist Lyn Boyer of Colorado will conduct an online awards ceremony.

Artists will submit new work as it is completed, accompanied by short narratives describing their selection of place and/or their creative process. Works from the festival will be available for purchase from Oct 25 – Nov 30, 2020.

Online presentations allow for rich content that could not otherwise be experienced. Art lovers will be able to immerse themselves in presentations from their favorite artists throughout the festival. From live demonstrations, to short videos created by our festival artists all across the country, to an online gallery of new works updated daily.
