      Jeanne Toal talks about her painting journey as an expression of the power of healing, “One way I’ve tried to tap into the mystery of life is through the world of healing. What heals? What is healing?” These questions propelled Toal through an early career in painting, a deep dive into medical writing, a decade working with mentally and physically ill individuals living without homes, another as a body therapist in hospitals and hospices, five years in a refugee resettlement program and now, again, painting full-time. She says, “The paintings in this exhibition are the result of recent investigation into liminal states. Each painting carries a history of accumulated layers and discovery. I use my hands as much as my brushes to apply oil paint, metal leaf and other media.  Several paintings include the color indigo, once one of the world’s most valued pigments and understood to be connected to the mystical.” She adds, “I paint from the inside out. While I start with an idea, vision or color in mind, something new emerges as ideas and materials interact. I try to capture a moment and its passing. This is a highly intuitive process and I never know just how it will end.”
