Finding the Hidden Spots – Artist Insights from Liz Hoag

Its All About the Connection – Artist Insights from Lyn Asselta

“Maine is where, at a very early age, I first understood the power of a landscape, and now it’s the place I’ve returned to after experiencing life for many years in very different environments,” says Asselta.

For her, painting involves a significant effort to infuse even the simplest objects, maybe a rock or a tree, with as much emotion as possible.

“My process is also evolving a little bit. The main meat and potatoes of my work are still painting and continue to be acrylic, but I’m starting to incorporate the use of tape and markers and objects,” he explains. “I’m treating my canvas like a collage with more emphasis on the painting than the collage part.”

“It demands a step backward, a slight tilt of the head, and begs for the smallest squint to see more clearly: as if looking into something luminous,” shares Mooney. “You must instinctively pull back to be pulled back in. Brush strokes of gold and grey and a faint remnant of sky blue cover the canvas, but it’s the orange. Burnt and bright. Deep and daring.”
