Voices (60x36) ~ Juror's Choice Award
I'm honoured to receive one of two Juror's Choice Awards at the Quine Arts Council Expressions 2021 juried show.
Here are the Juror's comments:
"Voices is loosely painted, but tightly conceived. It has an atmospheric quality moving into the distance as if it is being looked at from the landscape above.
Colours are repeated around the picture plane making it both abstract yet it has an inherent representational feel, much as a landscape might, with its sky, horizon and foliage.
It knows restraint in its calligraphy, has a nice balance and unique colour choices. It is textural and the dark tonalities contrast to create that sense of depth. It speaks a creative language."
Each painting is an "original" work of art made with a variety of mixed media materials including fluid acrylics, graphite sticks, inks, crayons, glitter, collage, pens, and whatever else excites me!
All my art is inspired by the nature I see outside my studio - the lake, trees, flowers, birds, and mostly by the wind that makes everything dance!
I love to try out different colour combinations, textures, and processes. And, I'm a big fan of multiple layers of both opaque and transparents paint!
