Elizabeth Geisler – Fluid Thoughts

My water reflection paintings combine the worlds of photorealism and abstraction.

Up close, the color use and brushwork read as abstraction, but from a distance, they blend into a more representational depiction.

I am intrigued by the intricate patterns on the water surface and how they can convey both movement and a sense of calm.  However, beneath the surface, there is a psychological element to why I am drawn to paint water. For me, water represents life, as we cannot survive without it, and it literally flows through all of us. It is a constant that connects us to each other.

In these tumultuous, divisive times, I find painting water to be a meditative and sometimes, cathartic process.  Ultimately, I hope the viewer is able to interact with my work on different levels — to appreciate the beauty of the abstract composition nature provides, while experiencing the almost musical rhythm of the water and its restorative properties.


Crescendo Gallery

Sandy White – LIKE I SEE IT: the pastels of Sandy White

Nature is unpredictable and roiling and talkative, wild and fun, and full of surprises. There is no smoothing over here, no patting down of landscape to make it look safe, manageable and picturesque. Instead of the viewer pressing reality onto the surface – thereby pushing nature back, I want my paintings to pulsate with nature’s undercurrents and hidden elements, working and wriggling up from the inside to reveal themselves, popping out to meet the viewer.  

Edgy pastels push the medium’s envelope. Beyond photo realism, landscape becomes a vehicle for the fresher language of abstraction.
