Mary Powers Holt during her exhibition at Cerulean Arts

My work is involved with landscape and inspired by abstract shapes and forms against atmospheric color. Unconscious images are generated from repeated observations of natural light modified by color and space in paint. I take photographs on walks and use the images in my studio to start my compositions. I also paint outside on site. The paintings for this exhibit are from 2019 and many are from 2020 during and after the pandemic quarantine and shut down. For this work I was looking inward and at my immediate home surroundings while taking more time to appreciate just being outside and in the studio. Natural surroundings for me are an escape and time in my studio a respite from grief and the news of the day.
