Meditations, a solo exhibition of new paintings by Hendersonville-based artist Ani Magai, will feature a selection of abstractions from the artists’ series Meditations on Color and Music. For each painting, the artist works within the parameters of seven colors, each correlating to the seven tones in a musical scale. Systematic yet poetic, the works offer a visual counterpart to sound using color and repetitive mark making. The resulting mosaic of individual brush marks envelop the senses and invite contemplation from the viewer.
Ani Magai was born in 1944 in New Jersey. She studied painting and drawing at the College of Marin, Kentfeld, CA and painting at the San Francisco Art Institute, San Francisco, CA. Magai’s works have been frequently exhibited in California and New Mexico. This is her first exhibition at CANVAS ArtSpace and in North Carolina. Magai lives and paints in Hendersonville, NC.
