Cody Riess’ newest collection, Journeys, brings the world as seen through the artist eyes to J Costello Gallery, Hilton Head, SC.

Landscape titled BonBon

Journeys, a series of twelve paintings, was inspired by images from her travels through Europe as well as her years in New Orleans. Essentially the pieces merge the poetry of various places with the beauty of their landscapes. Her work brings layers of a location into each piece almost allowing you to experience it as if you were there.

The paintings in the Journeys collection retain the humor, wisdom and cultural exploration that have become characteristic of her style. Each piece tells a story that engages the audience with its telling. The dynamic strokes of rich color are second nature to the artist and her art. This expressive nature relays an image of a world that is constantly changing but still the same somehow. Visitors of the locales will see images in the landscapes that bring memories of their travel back to them more clearly.
