Patricia Gwyllm Ziegler: View from Calle del Mar
Patricia Gwyllm Ziegler Artist Statement
“View from Calle del Mar” is an exploration of infinite possibilities within even the narrowest of limitations. Though it’s one view of simply the ocean and sky from one window, aims to show that every moment is a new view.
The ocean and sky trade cool and warm blues and greens, swapping intensities, playing with the light, employing the wind to whip up highlights, waltzing through its moods, changing and surprising.
I don’t aspire to copy these vistas. Instead I attempt to inhale their inspirations, exhale my thoughts and welcome their metaphors of air and water, heaven and earth, yin and yang, permanence and impermanence. I then paint the experience they have infused in my heart.
Mel Ziegler: At Play in The Ineffable
Mel Ziegler Artist Statement
I paint what is at play within me, surrendering myself as a noun and sinking into the verb I can only be, as are we all.
Materializing out of this exercise in color and form is energy, not ‘thing’. The energy takes command of my left hand, using a brush, acrylic paint, water and mediums to draw, rub, smear, and stain lines, marks and shapes onto the linen where they are left to live in dynamic relationship.
The work is my practice of sensitizing to the streaming of time in the bubble we experience as our world, material and ethereal. Zig- zaging through cause and effect, in a perpetual state of becoming and unbecoming, change is the only real thing. Ephemeral is all we are relegated.
Painting is my easing into and merging with the long rolling Now, a flash of delivered color and form that winks back at the infinite from the ten thousand parts particularizing as me rendering.
