April Street's work intersects the animal and human species with painting references to place the viewer somewhere between the abstract and representational, mixing artificial and natural worlds in ways that have become part of the artist's distinctive visual signature.
Her recent paintings are watery and space-like wonderscapes caught in states of advance, recession, and stillness. Precariously balanced by form, and desire, Street creates curiously layered paintings that combine saccharine-like colored stains and symbolic gestures with her own investigative narratives that she sets up, erases, overlaps and retells much like the relaying of an oral history that has been altered through passing.
