Description This painting is my reflection on the fact that you can't tell, by outward appearance, what might be going on inside another person. Very few people are what they appear on the surface. Most people outwardly go about their daily lives, their work and activities, while they inwardly struggle--down under--with an entire landscape of thoughts, concerns, fears, hopes and emotions. I have presented this inner landscape in abstract form, using a pastel collage, which was mounted on a birch wood panel and then overpainted in oil and cold wax.
Gina Lazarchik, Largo, FL Member Since May 2021 Artist Statement As an artist, I often use collage and layered paint--watercolor, oil and cold wax--to express different layers of experience. My work includes abstract, landscape and figurative pieces, as well as modern Christian art. I earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Florida, and the tropical theme is the inspiration for many of my landscapes. I believe that Imagekind can help me to broaden the exposure of my work and allow me to interact with the community of my fellow artists.
