angela saxon

My work is an exploration of nature. Working directly from the landscape, I paint the sublime I experience in nature: shifts of light, shape, color. Finding a language to describe what I see and leading a viewer to see likewise– in my work and in turn, in the natural world– is the measure of my success.

My eye is just drawn into places in the landscape. Light playing across a meadow, huge clouds towering over the lake, it’s always captivating to me. Sometimes I wonder how many times I can paint a cloud over a lake, but so far it’s new to me everytime. And I think that it is through this subject matter that my work is starting to move away from the literal…expressing more of the emotion of what I’m looking at, not just the imagery.
