Rhythms by Yvonne Paton

oil and charcoal on canvas
93x124cm framed

“My work expresses the ideas and experiences which accompany my explorations of the natural world.  Solitary rambles offer the opportunity for quiet observation and the chance to respond to feeling, senses, light, movement, place and existence.  The combination of oils and charcoal in my work provides both a gritty, textural surface and a distilled, glaze of subtle, glowing colour, grazed or interrupted by a line or smudge of charcoal that suggests form.

This painting reflects the hot, heavy pulse of the land in summer and the slender oasis created by a winding serpent of river-gums, green-leafed with twisted forms, following the slow curves of a dry creek bed.  As I move through the long, pale grass, surrounded by the steady hum of insects and the haze of heat, I see ahead the cool respite offered by these ancient trees to those who pass among them.
