Lin La Mer, Seattle Member Since January 2009 Artist Statement I am compelled to do art deep down in my soul; Observing the ordinary and horning it as a charished object. Time has enchanced the impact of one object on the other developing launguage that is the underlying them of my work. Warm colors calling forth contentment and comfot of home.
Still life speaks to me. The inter play of light on glass or shiny metal revealing the gems of everyday life. Look at clear glass. Here is a soild object with no color.
You can hold it in your hand, describe the shape, it is hard, and takes up space.
These are the challenges that make painting so exciting. My paintings have
paintings within the paintings. The abstractpaintings are hiding in the reflections
or shadows or in the folds of fabric.
