"Waterworks" is an on-going series which explores the reflective quality of water and its ability to change colour. I love being at the cottage and spending time near the lake. I am mesmerized by the changing nature of the water and vista. The colours of the sky and water and their reflection on their surroundings has captured my soul and my canvas.
My current process of pouring and pushing acrylic paints mimic and create the sensation of movement and colour. My photographic images dictate the direction of the composition and location of the pour, while the pour often dictates next steps for painting. The result is a work which meanders between reality and abstraction.
"Rock Pools" is a mini-series within Waterworks. They are mini in scale and explore close up shots of the way water pools in and around the gorgeous rocks of Georgian Bay.
