Artist: Dona Mara Friedman  
  Statement: My paintings are dealing with planes of space that convey implied places of interest, beauty and wonder.
Often a painting begins as I glimpse a particular textural field through a screened or rainy window. A visceral desire to connect to nature, learning to change and flow through seasons with light, color, texture and form, guides my choices.
The suggestion and ambiguity without absolute representation creates a simplicity, while the continued hope is that the viewer is drawn into the work, finding a resting place, or a human connection.
