A Place for Creativity & Creative People In CNY
Creating Art in the form of large scale paintings, installations, murals, and 3D design at my studio in Syracuse, New York has been my life's work. Through the years my work has traveled to find homes in many private and public collections. Recent work can be seen at the Nan Miller Gallery and other fine art galleries throughout New York as well as my Studio gallery in Syracuse. This year, May 2011, recent work will be exhibited at the Edgewood Gallery in Dewitt, NY.
Following is an excerpt from a recent review of an exhibit at the Limestone Art Gallery by the art critic Katherine Rushworth, The Post Standard Stars "Bigness' style is closest to the Synchronist' (in America) or Orphists' (European) of the early 20th century, where emotion was communicated through a rainbow of colors and hard-edged forms became the underpinnings for composition. They believed color and sound were similar in nature, with an artist arranging colors the way a composer arranged notes. Their goal was harmony.
This analogy to Bigness' works seems particularly apt when you see "Green House Blues," (2008), a striking oil on canvas that speaks to environmental concerns, but with a subtle voice. The piece exudes an improvisatory quality and like many of her pieces, is slightly whimsical: but it's clear 'Bigness has carefully orchestrated her blocks and wedges of land and cityscape into a dynamic whole. Her colors recall the palette of Robert Delaunay, and like his are full of light."
