MARCH 27 – Ingunn Milla Joergensen
Joergensen works in layers, adding paint, scraping off, and often mixing the colors directly on the canvas. Being extremely tactile, she often paints with her bare hands.
“I find that I simplify more and more. This is because so much clutter and noise surround us – I can breathe by paring down to the bare essentials,” shares Joergensen. “The spaces in between…where nothing happens, are almost more important. It puts the rest into perspective. I am working towards my paintings being a mental pause for the viewer. If I suggest half the story, the rest is up to them. I spend a lot of time meditating. Therefore, approaching the same subject over and over becomes like meditative prose. Every time I try to get closer to the subject’s essence, or the soul.”
MARCH 30 – Michele Poirier Mozzone
One exceptionally beautiful afternoon at the pool in 2011, I was struck by the ribbons of sunlight and distortions affecting my daughter through the moving water. I was also keenly aware of catching this lovely, brief moment with her before it flicks by. So I grabbed the camera and took numerous photos of her in the water to find inspiration for a new painting. I have drawn and painted all my life, but that was the beginning of the Fractured Light series, an exploration that excites and fascinates me today.
In these works, I pair my dual interests in figurative imagery and colorful abstraction to create paintings that capture the unique feeling and distinct associations of the body suspended in water and time. This series allows me to paint what I love – the figure – while exploring areas of fluid distortion that exist naturally in turbulent, sunlight-drenched water. Water lends meaning to the work as a vehicle for life, cleansing, change, renewal, and death. I find this unique atmosphere extraordinary.
