HELEN MIRANDA WILSON in Boston

I picked this up from Two Coats of Paint -- thanks Sharon. Helen Miranda Wilson is showing a group of new works on paper at Victoria Munroe in Boston through June 20. I assume she approaches these new gouaches in the same way as her earlier horizontal stripe paintings, building the image intuitively one color at a time, probably starting in the center. These new pieces are real beauties -- focused color meditations, human and universal. More images on the gallery website.
