Well… it's finally here –Opening Night! Please join me at the Pacini Lubel Gallery for the opening of Second Nature. Tonight, Thursday, November 5th from 6 to 8 as part of the Seattle 1st Thursday gallery walk. This solo show features my most recent encaustic work. I have not seen the final installation so I will be experiencing the show for the first time tonight. Here’s what friend and fellow artist, Barbara Dunshee, posted to her blog about my work:

“I've recently been reintroduced to Alicia Tormey's work. I loved it before and her recent evolution is very exciting. Her new show, opening at Pacini Lubel Gallery November 5th, is called "Second Nature". A great title as her encaustics on wood are nature enhanced to a higher power. Her abstractions are landscape reminiscent but on varying planes of existence, simultaneously macro and micro. And simultaneously above and below water and sky and earth. Scale and place are wonderfully nebulous and I find myself hungrily searching each image for additional mind bending. And this is just from dropping into her studio while she was in progress. I'm eager to see the full body of work at the opening.”

Thank you Barbara! And thank you to those who have left me such encouraging comments. I really appreciate your support.

I wish I could be there to see your beautiful works in person. The one on top . . . could that be my favorite? Perhaps for today. I'm sure to pick a new favorite in the near future.

Hope you enjoy the opening!

Hope your opening went well. Your work is gorgeous. Like throwing the door open and stepping outside. You even make the winter landscape feel inviting!
