SUNNY MULLARKEY MCGOWAN
I love the feeling of a brush, thick with paint, against canvas; the physical act of carving tiny grooves and ridges into linoleum blocks. Painting and printmaking are my primary means of artistic expression, and my subject matter flows from my admiration of the natural world to the beauty and power of the human form, and its relationship with nature. I find myself enamored by tiny patterns or burst of color in nature, in little discoveries in the earth, the bark, or insects, and I love bringing to life these often overlooked treasures. Causing people to pause and ponder how the grandiose and minuscule interact on the same plane is a driving force in my work. Combining the beauty we not only create, but find in the world around us, is my greatest source of inspiration.
From downtown Greenville, take South Main to Pendleton St. Turn right onto Pendleton St and cross Academy St into the Village of West Greenville. Turn right on Irvine Street, then right onto Perry Ave. The studio is just past West Greenville Baptist Church on the right.
