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.”

Our world is one that rewards people for conformity. We like people who share our views. We are comforted by people’s appreciation of our good taste and acceptance of our choices. Have you ever felt edgy stepping outside your comfort zone? Wondered what people would say? How they would react if you made choices your family and peers did not understand? Here’s someone who did.

 Meet JOELLE SOMERO: Abstract Artist

Why does a representational artist choose to paint abstract? It is a question I never considered until I met Joelle and her honest answer delights me.

For years Joelle painted representational work – realistic paintings that people could relate to … everyone that is, except Joelle.

“I wasn’t having fun painting realism anymore”.

Her move to abstract art began when Joelle stepped past fear and allowed vulnerability to guide her creativity. She began painting abstracts.

And then this happened …

Joelle made and hung a pair of canvas curtains.

Inspired by the texture of the remnants she began glueing them to a stretched canvas as an experiment.

It’s an experiment that unknowingly served as a prototype for what would become Joelle’s Abstract Collage series. Joelle paints abstract oil paintings in neutral, natural colours with a duck cloth collage foundation.

Duck cloth is a high thread count canvas.

Joelle’s love for Abstract Collage grew and so did the practical reasons for this artistic expression. Unlike painting, collage allows this artist the ability to start and stop as necessary to accommodate her busy life as a mom to four children. It allows her to be equally present for her family and to her art.

What I like: These works of neutral, layered texture are attractive in both modern and classic interiors.

These works lend nuanced texture to neutral design and decor and offer serenity to bolder interiors.

“Pink Sensations”

If I asked you for a word or two in a foreign language, I could bet you would know at least one even if you don’t know the language at all. Recently, I learned a new word. HUMO. It means SMOKE in Spanish and it’s the name of our Feature Artist’s latest series.

Meet Artist MIRIAM AROESTE

Miriam is an abstract artist who brings her passion for life and colour from her native home, Mexico City. In her newest collection HUMO, Miriam invites us to reflect on that space between our reality and what we tell ourselves. This mixed media on paper collection has delicate beauty. Each piece is steeped in colour while remaining graceful on the surface.

Miriam’s deepest connection to art is with colour and her use of it.

“I feel so different when I paint a red painting as to when I paint a white one. All the colours speak with their own voices, and when they are bright, I really feel my passion shouting. I transform as I work; I react to the colour, and the colour reacts to me.”
