Viewing abstract art is not passive activity. It makes people work and Teri Dryden knows that. “The abstract and mysterious result of [my] imagery invites viewers to look closer, feel deeper and to revel in the subtle dimensions beneath for clues about ourselves,” she said. To do all this heavy lifting of finding “the essence of who we are in this strange and often confusing world,” Dryden adds, then partially removes, paper, paint and marks resulting in dense, layered surfaces. Multiple views are required.
