Mary Powers Holt during her exhibition at Cerulean Arts

My work is inspired by abstract shapes and forms against atmospheric color in the landscape. Unconscious images are generated from repeated observations of natural light modified by color and space in paint. I am drawn to what is mysterious in the landscape and what might trigger a memory, image or remembrance of someone or something from the past. I may find a scene or image on a walk that interests me and go back and photograph it many times to see the light change or find that one interesting view. I use my camera to record and frame a scene and use multiple images to paint in my studio. I also do some outdoor painting on site. The sky and nature lend themselves to my love of painting and blending pigment to create atmosphere, form and expressive color.
