The following eight works by Arlene Slavin are comprised of four paintings and four murals. While you look at them, consider how different art is from life. In athletics (for example), ability never achieves perfection. In art, as amply illustrated by Ms. Slavin's works, talent obviously can approach perfection.
Alexander F. Milliken Gallery (1979)
Faded Air (2008)
Moose Mural, Yale University, Ezra Stiles College (1999)
Pediatric Waiting Room, Bellevue Hospital, NYC (1986)
Sea World, Gallery of the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs (1981)
Summer, Fall, Winter, Spring (an acrylic painting, 3 feet by 12 feet) (1990)
Tangled Beauty (2006)
