One statement, shared by Kinkead, perfectly conveys the thoughts of all three artists and the gallery as a collective group. “The pieces in this show are moments of stillness and movement… all inspired by patterns and events over this past year.”
“This painting is of sand, branches, rocks and tiny new spring life proposed by brushstroke. It activates and energizes the canvas, but at the same time holds it together,” says Fitzgerald. “I use texture to conjure objects and then paint over texture to suggest an underneath.”
Fitzgerald is a Maine artist and calls the beautiful town of Ogunquit home. There he is surrounded by the unique waters, know as brackish water. Where the river meets the ocean, the waters blend, swirl and swell to create something truly engaging.
Everyone sees through a different eye. Beauty, as well as art, is objective. Even artists stand before the same landscape, encapsulated by the same surroundings, yet the results captured on canvas vary in a way that is indescribable.
Today’s calendar of events is just as crazy and just as wonderful as yesterdays. And, of course, Maine Art Painting and Sculpture will be celebrating the best of it.
