"I enjoy painting in black an white because it its the most extreme of contrast. Â I am not a tonal painter and I feel that one color can make a contrasting color that much more beautiful. Â Black and white may just be the best two colors as they allow all the other colors of the room to shine. Â It is the most neutral of color combo's and can help with layering in homes, the paintings will balance any other art in the room, regardless of the color scheme or the design plan. Â They are the Switzerland of paint colors. Sometimes my eyes need a retrieve from color and so I move on to painting in black and white. I usually paint abstracts although I am exploring black and white flowers and a black Drippy Heart, which is just as happy and beautiful as my yellow ones ;) ". - Kerri Rosenthal, August 2104
There are moments in our lives when we experience awakenings - moments when we know more than we knew a moment before. One of the things we may know is that we are one with the universe - that the ebb and flow of need and abundance in our lives represents our seasons, just as clearly as the first sprout of grass in spring or last amber leaf in autumn signify the cyclical and ever-changing path of nature.This realization is what inspires my work. Painting, for me, is not only a form of expression, but also one of transformation. It is through this journey to the core of creativity that I discover my own.
The eye makes its way to the water through the dunes and beach grass. This piece is part of an ongoing series created with a palette knife and displays unique layering of color and abstract perception. When beginning this particular piece, I set out to offer more abstraction, giving a contemporary view with enough information for imagination to fill in the scene. The painting is on gallery wrapped Belgian linen with clean, natural edges. It comes varnished and wired to hang. Read more in the description below.
