LISA LEDSON AND PENELOPE MOORE

 

ÆRENA Galleries & Gardens is pleased to welcome two talented artists to the galleries by special engagement. Lisa Ledson and Penelope Moore paint with such energy and inviting texture, you can't help but be pulled into their abstract worlds of color. We're excited to share their work with our collectors and community.

A rapidly emerging Napa-based artist, Ledson's energy-filled abstract paintings reflect forces of the natural world and draw inspiration from creative forms of self-expression. Raised in the small town of Kenwood in Sonoma County, Ledson thrived off her mother's creativity, and attributes her artistic inclination to her exposure of both the visual and performing arts at a very early age. Trained extensively in ballet, Ledson's sense of movement is an intrinsic part of her practice.

Often combining acrylic paint with resin, Ledson's paintings boast abstract swirls of bright colors mixed with unexpected shimmering metallic accents. The paintings appear perpetually on the verge of flowing right off the canvas, giving the viewer the sense that the artwork is a single moment forever frozen in time.

Moore portrays a unique twist on life's simple pleasures in her paintings. Between her still life series of wine accessories and abstract painting series titled "Palette of the Palate," she explores color with joviality and zestfulness. Penelope Moore's work embodies the epicurean experience by her sensory amplitude, synesthesia. Moore distinguishes wine descriptors into a selective chromaticity on canvas at the same time she is tasting the wine.

Originally established as a Napa Artist, Moore regularly exhibited her work throughout wineries in Napa Valley and Sonoma. She currently lives and works in Polpenazze del Garda, Italy where her love of wine continues to grow and be a source of inspiration for her work.
