Ingunn Milla Joergensen
“It is the little things that catch my attention, a piece, a fragment, a texture, a thought, a word. Sometimes taking it all in is so much, it is almost overwhelming,” Ingunn Joergensen shares. “One little shell tells the story of the ocean. A piece of wood tells the story of lived life. Beauty is found in the most unexpected places.”
“My paintings are inventions of nature through careful observation of the color relationships when a piece is underway. I prefer this approach rather than the idea of reproducing nature. Staying open and at the moment gives me opportunities to see the accidents which can occur and can thrust a painting in a new direction,” shares Clair Bigbee. “Those are thrilling moments when I’m on the edge of a piece, and I get lost for a while. A certain amount of anxiety and tension brings the painting alive. I take significant risks in those moments, and it always seems to pay off; the art starts to sing. It’s a dialog between me and the painting. The narrative of the view diminishes, and my voice becomes more apparent. ”
We look forward to seeing you on Maine Art Hill this summer.
