When you think of the landscape that surrounds you do you see prairies or mountains? Oceans or lakes? Green grass or trees?
And what does this have to do with art?
Meet Gina Sarro: Abstract Landscape Painter
Gina Sarro is inspired by Canada’s incredible beauty. Gina is a prairie-girl living an art-filled life on the west coast of Canada. And the Canadian landscape has informed many of her paintings.
Gina’s style is layered and complex and it is always changing.
“Before I go into my studio I usually have a feeling of what kind of process I want to undertake: do I want to play with oil paints, and a palette knife, giving lots of texture or do I want to use high flow acrylics and drag it around the canvas or do I want to use a wide brush and blend away. Depending on the medium and tools, the end result changes up quite a bit. This is why I have different collections of work, that are all equally important.”
“I keep one inspiration painting from each series and then revisit it. I often ask myself how did I do that? And then I may start a new collection inspired by that previous work.”
“Sometimes it’s simply the colour palette from an older piece that inspires a new one!” – Gina Sarro
