re: marks and moves, abstract paintings and drawings

The title refers to Pines Bender’s continuing use of Zen calligraphic meditations, as in the ongoing “Sai Hojai” series, as well as to her return to an involvement with “process painting.”  The work retains her consistent involvement with layers of memory, mark making, images of flight, and movement, especially the myth of Icarus.  The sense of movement recalls dance; but also recalls the recent move of her studio and ARC Gallery.
