I make paintings to tell stories about the lives of women, rooted in the concept of personal narrative and inherently tied to the feminine realm. Depictions of modern female friendships, my family, and women in singular moments of self-reflection and celebration seek to depict my core values of social connection, time spent outdoors, and finding beauty in the every-day. Whether capturing a glance, walking a dog, or daydreaming, each figures’ actions reveal a narrative, often absorbed in quiet moments of daily living. Recently I have focused on the ways in which figures occupy outdoor spaces, such as scenes from my block, the garden, or a car. Pattern and color, incorporated through clothing, accessories such as sunglasses, jewelry, and cell phones add texture and reference current cultural fashion and icons. My style tends to be bold and graphic, with formal elements employing light and reflections to create specific moods. I hope to unlock the extraordinary in everyday scenes.
We’ve released this edition to coincide with Wurzel’s solo exhibition—Snapshots— at Praise Shadows, a new(ish) Boston-area gallery with an ambitious program and an ethos that resonates with our own mission here at 20x200. (Go see it if you can!) The exhibition includes the original 48”x48” oil on canvas version of Walk and Talk along with many other recent works by Wurzel. In the gallery’s release for the show, they describe her work as ”akin to the snapshots that capture the fabric of a time, a place, a moment.” These snapshots are indeed glimpses into a world that is very much Wurzel’s own, but consider their intense familiarity a call to action. Everyone’s everyday is worthy of close observation and celebration, and that includes your own!
