Certain tried-and-true techniques have the possibility of profound revelation. Lisa Domenic practices continuous line drawing, in which pen never leaves paper, and the results are compositions in which everything is connected and movement is ever-present. “Freedom to Glow,” a landscape of shimmery greens, joins together vines, trees, cloud-strewn sky and an American flag, as if all had sprung from the same root. “Pink” does likewise with a still life of roses in a glass vase, every leaf and petal intertwined and vibrant, related as well to the table on which it sits and the walls that form its background. This seems a statement not just about the liveliness and beauty of nature but about life in general, and the value of noticing the interconnectedness of all things. Also, they’d make stunning works of stained glass.
