Great art picks up where
My abstract landscapes are a visual response to the natural world based on representing a feeling and an aesthetic sense. Sometimes they are created in direct response to a particular landscape, season or experience, or from impressions, sense and memories of a time, place or season. In this sense they can be described as contemplative.
They are build up in mixed media; collage, acrylic paints and ink until a desired effect and feeling results.
The New York artist Brian Rutenberg said in 'A landscape painting is complete when the landscape vanishes'. There are reflections of land. sky and water in my landscapes, yet nothing is defined leaving the viewer to access the painting on many levels.
