Harvest Moon at Popham Beach
oil on panel
12 x 12 in.
As a feminist and environmentalist, I see a strong connection between the oppression of women and pollution of the environment. In my own art I paint emotionally layered landscapes in order to spark larger conversations about these topics.
In crafting these luminous landscapes with glazing and transparencies, I try to speak to a softness and resilience that I see in the land that inspires me. The landscape that I am showing in the “Home” exhibition is a view outside my window in my home in Maine.
I have had the privilege of quarantining near the water on the northern coast, and have spent lots of time reflecting about my surroundings and feelings of isolation. My paintings are a product of that musing.
