WallFlowers revisited

I have worked on integrating the landscape and the figure for several years now, I feel the compelling need to make them become one and the same; yet still unique and identifiable.  I am not sure if the effort here is to show how we become our own landscape or if our landscape forms us, but somehow I know it is important to paint it. I have waffled between the two ideas and yesterday saw a small video(http://wewillblowyourmind.blogspot.co.uk/2013/05/life-universe-most-astounding-fact-neil.html), which gave me yet another and very new meaning for my work.  A scientist, Dr. Neil Degrasse Tyson was asked by a reader of Time Magazine:”What is the most astounding fact you can share with us about the universe?”

Here is the latest piece…I am trying to work with more than the solitary figure, just to push myself further and to move to the outer-limits of my comfort zone…

WallFlowers: The Agreement  40 x 40 inches.  There is something that I love about the roughness of this painting, I may leave it as it is or I might tweak it a bit more.  (I am throwing in the black and white of the painting to show the values more clearly.  I do this with every piece I paint when I am near the end of the painting. I can always see the trouble spots in black and white as usually the values will be the culprit of a problem for me.   I am excited by the integration of the values in this piece.)

Thank you for reading my blog, I am always grateful.

Take care,

About Cathy S. Hegman

Art, much like a road links people together both visually and mentally. One can attain a glimpse inside the artist’s soul by studying the artist’s work, and perhaps find something that links them to the artist and the art. A work of art has the ability to resonate and touch the emotions without regard to age, gender, race, or religion through the application of pigment to canvas or paper. Art can be the voice that cries out without limits, or sometimes whispers the thoughts of the creator. Art speaks silently, yet conjures up feelings and gives satisfaction that is undeniable, and yet intrinsic. It validates our need to learn about ourselves, and gives us freedom to search for our own identities. The road is long and often dusty, but always renewing the spirit with inspiration. It is my hope in this lifetime to give a part of what I have learned through and on my journey with others. The deepest form of us is revealed in our thoughts and my art is the translation of my thoughts to paper and canvas. I paint layers of color and line to create a history of marks that will guide the viewer into my world of thought and engage them in the process. I embed personal symbols throughout my art to give it deeper meaning. I encourage you to think about life in a visual way and to contemplate our connections with each other and the world we share.
