Lisa BaldwinIn painting I strive to isolate a moment in the life of a landscape. With the use of broad brushstrokes and a liberal application of paint, I edit this process to include only what is necessary. Concerned as I am with the immediate qualities of the contemplative experience, I believe genuine expression of this untamed subject requires me to work outside on location.
Removed from the confines of controlled civility, speed in execution is essential to capture the way light transforms things, or the sound leaves make when they rustle, or the wind itself that provokes the sound. Influenced by Tom Thomson and the group of seven's desire to create an art based on Canada's northern character, my goal is to maintain an adventurous mindset going beyond surface appearance and penetrating deeper essential truths of the still wild places.
