“For me the mystery of the landscape is a metaphor for life- full of transitions. Some are soft and delicate, others more severe.
“I am fascinated by the way elements of nature meet one another. Lines and edges are lost and found. Realism and abstraction merge. Contrast, color and value are dramatic or subtle. This exhibition hopefully captures the transitions within the creative process of each piece and from one medium to another.”
