Veron Ennis, "FLOR 369: Greater Yellowspike Orchid (Polystachya concreta)," 

water-based mediums on cotton rag paper, 8" x 10", 2012. (CC) 

 

About the Artist

Veron Ennis is a Downtown Fort Myers-based modernist painter concerned with the intimate characteristics of the layered painted medium; the language of color; and the interplay between precision and chance application. Using an underlying grid format is of particular interest to her. Her work can be found at HW Gallery in Naples, Florida.

Artist's Statement

The transference of information during the creative process from artist to painting, and then from painting to viewer, is the reason why art can transcend time and why abstract painting has the ability to communicate. Transferring specifically positive information is a graceful way to connect with people and is, quite frankly, essential to life.
