Artist’s Statement


“I have been painting and drawing since childhood, finding it the most satisfying way to express what is meaningful to me. Most of my paintings are inspired by landscapes that surround me here in New Hampshire and Vermont, as well as ones I observe when traveling. I feel moved by the atmospheric qualities of this place, and it is why I moved to rural New England forty-five years ago.


I work in oils, pastels and monotype printmaking: I find all of these useful vehicles to do mark making and image making. My work is exploratory in impressionist, tonalist and abstract genres. By using careful composition, creating a clear foreground and background, and exploring color and texture, I strive to create a sense of place that the viewer can enter and experience.”

- Marcie Maynard



Biography


MARCIE MAYNARD Oils, Pastels & Monotypes

Marcie Maynard presents oils, pastels and monotypes.  This collection is a journey through the artist’s observed, envisioned, and abstracted landscape series.  It is presented as a retrospective from two decades of Maynard’s work.  The artist’s observational landscapes in pastel, use compositions which lead the eye of the viewer to focal points of horizons, cloud formations, rivers, floodplains, mountains, and forests.  These subject matters of wild landscapes with intimate details, show the artist’s vision of the surroundings which inspire her and invite the viewer to find a sense of place in her work.  Maynard’s landscape paintings in oil have, over her career, given way to more and more abstraction.  Many of her recent works in this show use color palettes of bright primaries along with rich, deep pigments.  These paintings are more about the colors and shapes of the landscape, then the landscape itself.  Maynard’s monotype prints show the artist’s observation of the textures in the landscape, revealing abstraction through a more tonal color palette.  Using this range of mediums, Maynard’s body of work shows the sojourns and meanderings of an artist in pursuit of a personal expression of our shared experience in the landscape.
