As in previous bodies of work, Elaine Green’s new paintings emanate a metaphysical sensibility. Each landscape may be understood as the extension of an inner sense of being, or place where Nature and Self are fused. The imagery projects a profound quietude that encourages a state of reflection. “My interest lies in the fleeting nature of the elements, perceiving a certain moment and then attempting to capture its essence,” she explains.
“The ephemeral nature of clouds and flowing water has always captured my attention,” Green continues. “On the one hand they remind me of the passing of time and on the other, they keep me fixed in the ‘here and now’, savouring the moment. Clouds and water stretches are like layers of paint; like layers of the soul. I think my works are more about those feelings I get from experiencing a scene rather than actual representations of it.”
Opening Event: Saturday 3 June, 4 – 6pm.
