Call for Artists Accepted Entries
Chicago, Illinois, USA
These pieces are from a series called “SNAPS: portraits of Maine.” They are comprised of small oil collages that reference a place or experience of 50 years spent in the landscape of New England. I divide my time between studios in Maine and Chicago, painting representational landscapes and botanicals with oil on canvas. I use disposable palettes, and one day a discarded palette caught my eye. The stains, smears, and colorful brushstrokes evoked a topography that was abstracted yet familiar. I cropped it, modified it, and soon images emerged that suggested roads, fields, mountains and streams. The residue of one landscape became the core of another.
