Her performance will thrust the audience into a voyeuristic role asking the viewer to examine how they feel about this type of public expression.

In The Red Wine Bar & Cafe: 6510 Phinney Ave N
Meshie and Liz are two artists who together create a type of art that blends both their very different artistic abilities. Meshie is very much an abstract artist and expert colorist with a love of working on a very large scale. Her palette always includes textures with iridescent and metallic which make the changes of natural light an important component of her art. She has sold major pieces in the US and overseas. Liz is a lover of architectural forms with a high degree of experience in representational drawing and modeling 3D environments and objects for computer simulations. She studied art, architecture and enjoys drawing the most. Sketching figures and architectural forms is her passion.

Liz and Meshie discover when offering up opinions on each other’s various art projects that they both push each other in new and interesting directions. When they go so far as to ‘pass the brush’ they find that with this unusual collaboration they create a wholly unique style of art that neither creates by herself. Each brings her unique perspective to the process and continually challenges the other to step outside their comfort zone. Artists present.

She does not attempt a definitive answer, but rather explores the joy of not knowing where fact ends and fiction begins.

Rachael has paints her in acrylic upon a decoupage background of classic literature. Both the images she chooses and the books she uses are deliberately provocative and/or meditative. They speak to a life that is lived in the margins. Artist present.
