JAMIE KIRKLAND

My work is about creating a feeling of deep calm, soft stillness, expansive space and tranquility, a sense of equanimity, a secret to take rest. The process is one of transmuting paint into lyrical expressions of color and mood. I see color and composition as my primary modes of communication.

MARINA DUNBAR

Taking from their simplicity, I approach my paintings with a sense of restraint; laying down transparent shapes of color and letting the interaction of hues establish a feeling of depth and dynamic motion within each piece.

I find great inspiration in the natural world, and consider flowers especially stirring. I expressively marry shapes, colors, and scents of my favorite blooms, which produce lush, colorful, and charmingly chaotic compositions.

Acrylic and watercolor are the media of choice for me because of the fast drying process. I continue to learn every day, and my work constantly evolves, as I always have the desire to see things a bit different and in a new way.  I like switching between wood and paper, watercolor and acrylic. Because I spend so much time in the studio, that helps me to not get stuck. It forces me to see things from a different perspective and breaks my thought process so I can take a fresh approach
