Micaela Marsden

May 13/14 and May 20/21

I am interested in finding the intersection between the subject and what I want to express—the emotion, the poignancy, the suspension between states.

I am a studio- and plein-air- painter. Working outside requires speed and flexibility to respond to the changing light conditions and environment to accomplish your goal; working inside provides the time to take the artwork in multiple directions. Plein air landscape painting is appealing to me as I like being in the midst of the scene – right up close to the aromatic plants, the animal life, and experiencing the wind & weather directly. This gives one an intimate and grounded feeling of the place which informs the image and hopefully creeps into the paintings.
