In Everything Else Falls Away, a new art exhibit at Goucher College, Regina Tumasella explores the dynamics of chance, nature, and the human condition through layered paint. The exhibit, which is free and open to the public, runs in the Rosenberg Gallery on Goucher's campus from Monday, September 10, to Sunday, October 14. The art can be viewed Monday through Sunday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. An artist's reception will be held Thursday, September 20, 6-9 p.m. Call 410-337-6477 or visit www.goucher.edu/rosenberg for more information. For the exhibit, Tumasella worked to find parallels between nature and emotion and experience. Applying paint with a roller allowed her to experiment, sometimes hiding layers of paint under an opaque sheet of color, sometimes barely veiling them and allowing other hues to leap through the gaps. "I've been thinking a lot about chance and how it relates to life and to painting," said Tumasella, a BFA graduate of Maryland Institute College of Art. "Interacting with a painting is a lot like how we interact in life. For me it's about finding the moments and really appreciating them." Inspired by artists from the Abstract Expressionist era of the 1950s, which explored the avant garde using an anti-figurative aesthetic, Tumasella welcomes the unexpected in her paintings. She concentrates on color and texture to hone in on a deeper, more universal experience of landscape, something she sees as parallel with the human experience.
