JOHN WAYNE AIRPORT DISPLAYS NEW AGE ART BY LAGUNA WOODS RESIDENT
SANTA ANA, Calif. - From January 14 through February 16, a selection of digital imagery and acrylic paintings from Laguna Woods resident Susie Stockholm are on display at John Wayne Airport (JWA) as part of JWA's Community Focus Space Program. The collages can be viewed on the Departure (upper) Level near security screening areas in Terminals A, B and C, and on the Arrival (lower) Level adjacent to Baggage Carousels 1 and 4.
Stockholm's exhibition features both acrylic paintings with strong geometric shapes reflecting the non-linear Southern California streets, as well as resolved iPad/iPhone digital imagery that depict her travels. She merges traditional and new media by using her iPhone 6+ to photograph her architectural grid-work acrylic paintings inspired by landmarks with aesthetically captivating and intersecting forms. She then digitally transforms them on her iPad Pro into photo collages to highlight the hustle and bustle of urban life from a bird's-eye macroscopic vantage.
"Transitioning from traditional to iPad art and photo collage is exciting; yet I'm still delighted by the colors, architectural shapes and intersecting lines you see in my traditional paintings," said Stockholm.
