Below are the artist statement for each series along with how the series came about.

One of my favorite stories about Matisse was on his pricing. A collector came to his studio to buy a painting from Matisse. Matisse painted a beautiful outline of women in blue paint in a few minutes. When the collector asked why should he pay so much for a painting that took only a few moments. Matisse replied," To paint in this way has taken me a lifetime not a few moments." 

The Collector understood and walked out with the beautiful blue painting done by Matisse.

We never really know what the artist has been through to paint the work she does. It is a mystery.

 
Title - Pastoral Scene 17x11" Statement-Series- Views of Route 16, NH The series is known for its thematic use of differences in perception of light across various times of day, seasons, and types ofin the Mount Washington Valley. The tension of the weather along with the energy perceived from the snow is another highlight of this group of paintings. The subject matter is the local views of up state, NH. I have used a somber palette mixed in with some bright colored highlights. New Hampshire is no “Plain Jane”, when it comes to views. That is why painting inside the 5,000 miles of forests, starting from New Hampshire including Canada, makes this area a phenomenal studio space. Yes, an outside studio space that replaces the comforts of the traditional white walls as a place to paint is at times impractical due to the weather. This series is in oil and was started in 2010.

Title- Happiness Needs Subtle Adventure 48x36" The Blinking Light Series- There is a special light that comes off of these paintings. The subject matter is anywhere from landscapes to philosophy. What pulls them all together is that they are fully and totally abstract. I have dropped all horizon lines, so you are on your own when viewing these.

Robert Frost- Swinger's of BirchTrees

Statement- Paintings using the rhythms of the paintbrush movement, to support the meter of Robert Frost’s work.

This series of abstract paintings and the poems of Robert Frost’s work together to entice the viewer to enter a new way of thinking or expanding their imagination about New England. Robert Frost’s work speaks to us using poetry in a fantastic abstract way; these abstract paintings support his more abstract work.

Frost developed his own theory of poetry, which is reflected in his verse and teaching.  Frost’s goal was to use the everyday rhythm of speech in verse.  He rejected the stilted patterns and rhymes of the 19th century poets.  He also did not care for free verse in which there is no rhyme or meter. In one famous example, the "Mending Wall," he used a situation of repairing a wall between two farms, a situation common to the farm life of New England, to convey an idea which he believed held true in the life of all people.

Klementovich -This group of Paintings explores the edge detection of objects and landscapes that depict Frost’s poems. My work is influenced by Basquiat’s painting in the use hieroglyphic like brush strokes. One person who saw this group of paintings claimed that the palette was tropical for paintings that represent the cold New England. Perhaps I am like the Gaugain of New England with his Fauvism like colors! This work is showing at the Carver Hill Gallery, Please feel free to pop over to see the quality of the work.


Title- Always Leave Foot Prints 10x10" Statement -Mars Needs Women This exploration of Landscape and women is the foundation of this series. The beauty of Mars is that it is predominantly an orange planet with blue shadows. These two colors being contrast colors give the compositions a whole new color theory on landscapes. Painting where there is no gravity anddifferent atmosphere density are exciting to any landscape painter. Earth is so blue and green, that is why Mars is so exciting to paint, THE ORANGE is a warm color.  To view the Mars landscapes, I did a few astral projection sessions to get a feel of the Mars Landscapes. The beauty of exploration of women on Mars is that there is none. So the field is a totally open one. This open field allows for unknown concepts to be painted.

Title- Movement of Icefalls36x24" Icefalls and Tuckerman's Ravine series, Mount Washington- Statement A new Language of Mountains and Ic Theseoil paintings depict the acclaimed and deadly Tuckerman’s Ravine’s Icefalls, which are located on the top right crest of the Mountain’s edge. During the spring and later winter month’s skiers will ski off the dangerous top ledge of Tuckerman’s where these Icefalls cascade off the mountain. To make a successful jump the Icefalls require skiers to go off cliffs as tall as 25 feet. The Bahamas Blue of New England The illuminating qualities of the Icefalls are a rare Bahamas blue. During the cold February and March months these Aqua blue Icefalls are in bright contrast to the white snow. Only through many nights of below freezing weather can this area produce this ghostly haunting mix of transparent blue. There are only a few places in the world that can trap this amazing Aqua blue color. The four painting are 28x36” and one is 36x48”. Ifyou look closely at the work you can see the many layers of oil which show the frozen moss behind the Icefalls, the movement of hidden water flowing behind the ice, and trapped dirt and rock behind the Icefalls. Rebecca Klementovich, one of the abstract painters in the Femme Fatales of the North has spent many years studying these particular Icefalls and has given us a glimpse into its frozen world
