Artbox Project NYC!

Fiordland National Park in New Zealand is an otherworldly place of infinite beauty. I have never seen as many waterfalls in one place as when I visited there. I wanted to capture the ancient feeling I had when visiting this land that seemed untouched by human beings. The aerial view is a favorite of mine. I hope to convey the feeling of gliding through the air towards the "Silver Lake", with the water flowing all around. I scraped away the oil paint to expose the silvery reflection of the steel everywhere there is water.

I am so excited to be in New York City for Armory Week! Here is one of the paintings in The Artbox NY 1.0 Show at the Stricoff Gallery, 564 W 25th St. New York, NY. The steel is revealed through scraping and polishing and adds reflective light to this piece. In most places that read as white in this digital photo, it is actually the steel reflecting the light back at the viewer,  in the lake and water falls as well as the mountains in the background on the right.
