Standing On Ararat
For people of faith there is an understanding that in the
beginning was the Word; through the Word form was given to the
void. The artist gives form to the word and, through all of
the arts. The artist records astonishment, records the
geographies of earth and spirit and, in doing so, inspires and
challenges notions of being fully human and fully present.
Paula Wallace is a working artist maintaining a studio at the
Hot Shops Art Center in Omaha, Nebraska. Much of her art has
its genesis in literature, theater, music, or the spiritual.
While most of her work is figurative with an emphasis on the
human face, her range of styles may be representational to
whimsical with lush color and an evocative narrative quality.
Art is the language of her work: to delight in beauty and to
share the human experience are aspects of that language.
