The COVID pandemic has changed our lives and affected us globally and individually, bringing loss, uncertainty and separation, making many people feel devastated and unmotivated. It encompassed our lives and suppressed many positive things, bringing to the surface the darkest feelings. The world we live in changed and not for the better. Yet it still has glorious beauty that can heal and inspire. As a person and an artist, I want to stay focused on the positive side and translate it through my creative work. Art is a great and unique form of communication that has no borders or limitations. For me personally, art has always helped me to overcome any life circumstance. I called my show 'Inspirations' because this is about things and places that moved and inspired me. There are many locations I painted during the pandemic, including Cape Cod beaches and the surrounding areas, several locations of New York State (New York City, Ithaca & many other upstate NY locations), many local areas of Southeastern Massachusetts (World's End of Hingham, locations of Marshfield, notable locations around Sharon, my home town), and more.
As a full time artist I am used to painting a lot, both outdoors (en plein air) and in my studio. I mainly work in oil and pastel. As a representational painter, I find it important to catch the interaction between light and shadow and how it affects whatever I paint, conveying the atmosphere of the place when it comes to landscapes. Accuracy of translating this interaction is a key to any successful painting in my opinion. I aim to capture the momentum, translating the physical appearance of reality while also reflecting my own personal vision. That vision is expressed through the harmony of design, color, and light.
Whenever I paint, I try to make people see the ordinary in a new perspective. A reminder that beauty is all around. It is just a matter of stopping for a moment to see it. People find that my paintings 'can evoke feelings of calm happiness and joy', can 'light up the room', and 'enable us to stop and appreciate a view we may see everyday'. — T.R.
