Spring Arrivals – Liz Hoag 2022

In all of my work, the light is critical to the feeling. After taking photographs on walks around her neighborhood or local trails, she returns to her studio. This is where the magic happens. Starting with a dark canvas or negative space, she builds up by adding light. The result is a stained glass image that is both abstract and representational.

A One Woman Show – Artist Liz Hoag at Maine Art Hill

“I use the woods as a starting point for an abstract idea. Then, by intentionally cropping the view, I consciously retain a substantive structural focal point within the composition,” shares Hoag. “I use other elements that guide the audience to look around the space and return to the focal point. The forms from nature I choose to retain are weighted and colored in a way that makes the viewer feel sure of their footing, feel balanced, feel comfortable.”

Whether it’s looking up at trees in our suburban neighborhoods, driving down country highways, or walking trails to the lakes, streams, and sea, we have a visual peace and quiet within reach. We can find calm and beauty right along the road almost anywhere in Maine.
