Collection: Current Exhibit

Honey Lea Gaydos paints compelling and psychologically evocative paintings of women and objects. These images, which are not intended to be portraits, are beautiful and ambiguous. Contemplative moods, metaphor, and symbolism are sensitively expressed using classical painting techniques and modern materials combined with a contemporary sensibility.

In her career as a university professor, interdisciplinary scholar, and advanced practice psychiatric-mental health nurse, Dr. Gaydos promoted the arts in healing practices, health care environments, and research. In addition to her nursing degrees, she has a PhD in Interdisciplinary Studies. She has received numerous awards for her teaching, nursing practice, and artwork. She is a seasoned, professional artist who has shown and sold her work for many years through galleries and exhibitions.


ARTIST STATEMENT


My intention is to connect with viewers through images that are emotionally evocative and personally meaningful.  The realistic figurative paintings in this exhibition are meant to reveal truths in the heart that might be hidden from conscious awareness, but which are, nevertheless, expressed by the face and body in a particular moment. 

Each painting goes through many stages from conception to completion. As in traditional academic painting, success in my work relies heavily on a multilayered process and the structure established by correct values and carefully planned patterns of light and dark. However, rather than the traditional medium of oils, I use acrylics or pastels that are pure pigments in pans not sticks. In using a classical approach with these modern materials, I aim to situate my work within a tradition while at the same time exploring the potential of contemporary innovations.
