Mary Ann Sedivy
"The landscape and the beauty of nature are intriguing and rich sources of inspiration for my paintings. Due to the variety of colors, textures, shapes, light and sounds through each season, the natural world continually provides incentive for creativity. This awareness is stimulated by a deep connection I feel with the outdoors. Painting is a means of preserving and highlighting what we are rapidly losing in a rapidly changing world.
For me, expressing the beauty of nature isn’t confined to one means. Sometimes a plein air painting, a floral and other times a studio painting with abstract elements. Most often with expressive brushwork and strong elements of color exploration.
I enjoy the exploration of surface texture, drawing on the paint surface, interfacing collage media with paint and keeping the brushwork energetic. When I paint I’m thinking about colors, textures, lines, shapes and how they all fit together. Color experimentation and developing figure ground relationships guide me while I investigate the bridge between the natural world and the painted surface."
