"It is a revelation, an act of trusting inner vision to engage colors and energy in a dance as this union flies towards another encounter with the landscape that surrounds me. Exposed and electrified by the gestural marks on canvas or paper, my entire focus is an intimate moment of color image. Gesture is energy made visible and expresses a responsive connection to a specific landscape. Every make is infused with my relationship to the bittersweet and expresses a sense of wonder-opening me to the energies of the sky, water, and earth. The paintings and drawings capture my emotional response to the ephemeral nature of light, reflections, trees, and clouds. It is an intuitive vision expressing the tension between small recognizable landscape forms that contrast with larger abstracted exaggerations of color and shapes. It is the visible and unseen realities, the concrete and the felt experiences, that drive me to paint and draw." - Kate Trepagnier
