"I work in various media including oil paint, encaustic, photography and print. Each medium imposes physical conditions onto the creation, and ultimately the outcome, of the work.
The Landscape paintings are abstracted from nature created from a synthesis of views detached from that of an actual view. I reduce the moment into its gesture: a memory that retains only the most important facts; like a visual haiku. The form is simplified with (or through) expanse of color. Some of the paintings flirt with pure abstraction yet the landscape is always perceived. Areas of thin paint applied like a wash or sometimes poured contrast with bold strokes of colors applied thickly with brush or palette knife. I move swiftly to capture the essence of my subjects. Wide brushes loaded with paint in my quest for simplification of form and smaller brushes for necessary detail. The process is part of the finished painting and I will regularly work across multiple canvases, in order to preserve gestural freshness.The works are emotionally reflective of solitude and calm, or passion. I work in various media including oil paint, encaustic, photography and print. Each medium imposes physical conditions into the creation, and ultimately the outcome, of the work."STATE OF THE ART - Fine Art Consulting: Katharine Dufault, a New York Times featured curator, brings her extensive experience in the visual arts and design to help you develop or refine your collection.
