Art that engages the eye, soothes the spirit and stimulates emotion.

Genie Maples’ use of color is a hallmark of her artwork. One might see swishes of white leaping about and ascending toward the heavens like the fully awakened spirit, against a backdrop of turquoise, indigo, and orange. Water might be evident, or a dream, or the sky. But, her abstract images all speak of a journey through life. The literal description of Maples’ art is only a preface to the fascinating spiritual perspective of a color theorist: that one’s inner life is firmly grounded in comfortable self-worth and achievement, and is balanced by connection to spiritual life - consisting of both the quest for and discovery of truth - and the breach that occurs is the refreshment of the spirit, following struggle to reach equilibrium.

Sirani Gallery address is 5875 Forbes Ave in Squirrel Hill, Pittsburgh, PA, 15217, Phone number 412.422.2121.
