Curator’s Comments:

 

This ethereal painting of Kennebunkport initially looked photographic in a thumbnail image. I was glad to open the file and look more closely, as I appreciated both the highly representational illusion of space coupled with unusual shimmering light.  The blue- violet hues reflected in the wet ground surface in the foreground beautifully connect with the cool mist beyond. I also enjoy the slightly offset asymmetrical balance of the space, in which the building structure is counterbalanced compositionally by the darker patch of ground in the bottom right. It was interesting to be reminded of your other paintings in your studio practice after viewing this landscape, as I recall admiring your figurative works a great deal. While Kennebunkport is the only full landscape you’ve posted here (besides the intense focus on Lion of Weeds), there’s a lush contemporary Romanticism on full display.
