Abbie Rabinowitz Artist Statement

Painting is storytelling and paint is my vocabulary.

I listen with my eyes and tell my story with paint. Each brush mark I place and each color I choose are fragments of a story that I am hearing and seeing for the first time. In each painting I find my own rhythm, alternating between storyteller and listener. How I respond from one mark to the next becomes the content of my story, from the beginning of the painting to the end.

Telling my stories through art is how I can invite others into my world and a way to connect to them.  Sharing my view of the world with others is as important as discovering it for myself.
