CAMIBAart proudly presents Liminal & Luminous, paintings and sound works by Misha Penton.
The visual works, with their expressive movement and rich shimmering colors, are emotional and contemplative, while the sound world for Liminal & Luminous is an ambient and immersive voice-scape to accompany the paintings. Misha’s use of multi-layered voice tones, whispers, and phrase fragments mirrors the introspective nature of her visual art work.
In her own words:
My work resounds in expressionistic landscapes where elemental energies of wild places converge. The physicality of paint on canvas allows me a space to experience and share nature's dynamic, ever changing color worlds. I work with the poetics of movement, intuition, improvisation and play, and with a committed practice of awareness and a sensitivity to the unfolding creative process which, itself, crafts and reveals meaning.
