Visual Voice Fine Art is proud to reopen for 2014 with an exhibit of new works by Judy Arsenault. WildWood continues the artist's exploration of the woodland thicket in a series of encaustic and acrylic paintings.
While much of the source material for her work comes from plein air painting excursions and from years of observation of her rural NS environment, it is the counterpoint to this landscape, which is the impetus behind these dynamic pieces: "the fast moving industrial world full of change and chaos". To Judy, the woodland thicket is a place full of dense texture and flickering light and shadow, through which one can only move slowly. Best expressed by the artist herself, "I wish to convey the concept of wilderness as refuge. I hope that viewing these paintings will provide an opportunity for contemplation and reflection."
runs until May 10.
