Carole Garland “Streaming Color”

Event Description

Carole Garland painted in watercolor en plein air as a form of meditation and escape –a distraction from the stress of 21st century living and a job in sales. She drove to the local Santa Monica Mountains, Malibu Creek, Solstice and Topanga Canyons to find solace.

Sitting on the ground with an Arches full-sheet watercolor paper taped to a 24”x32” board held in her lap, Garland looked out on a stony streambed, a creek tracing a path over the rocks. Against a cloudless gray sky, willows drape over the water, their branches glancing the water’s surface. And Isabey brush to paper, so she began.

Nature is the springboard to Garland’s imagination, but her interpretation of it begins and ends with the medium of watercolor. Her nontraditional, abstracted landscapes take their cue from the watercolors: their brightness, their transparency, and their inherent desire to slide in odd directions, out of control. She is its servant, surrendering to the direction and will of the medium. Garland explores mark making, color and form in these chromatic and vivid watercolors, at the same time reminding us to take solace in our natural surroundings.

Opening Reception:
Saturday, April 21st, from 5 – 8PM
