Get to know our authors through the new Contributor Series. A group of short posts from Proximity Arts members. Allow us to share our work and our thoughts on making work with you.

For the first instillation Ilene has written a paragraph that speaks to the relationships between still life, landscape and the figure. This poetic work explores both the formal and emotional aspects of each genre. She has also opened the doors to her “little red studio” for a brief guided tour.
