Narrative: HORIZONS – The natural shapes that make up this work, the canvases and wood, are reminiscent of clouds, birds, forms derived from skies. Within the imagery are earthly forms of stone, waterfalls, and distant horizons. The work feels in flight, hovering above, and at the same time grounded firmly upon the earth. It creates for the viewer a sense of peace and well being. It is intensely colorful, yet harmonious and restful. It would feel at home in any environment that is surrounded by, and with views to nature.
From the Owner: “HORIZONS is peace in a not so peaceful world. It is very calming. The way the brilliant color palette is balanced gives me a sense of restfulness and relaxation. The room with HORIZONS is now my favorite room in the house. I love it more and more each time I look at it. It’s a masterpiece.”
