Brush with Nature

When: Feb. 28-March 30 2013

You can’t really go wrong if you’re following in the footsteps of Claude Monet. Monet, being the artistic genius that he was, noticed that painting landscapes posed a challenge because of the way light can change the composition. Hence his tireless study of waterlilies and the bridge at his home in Giverny, France. Linda Fantuzzo also recognized the elusive qualities found when painting a landscape, realizing after several years of painting en plein air that the landscape is subject to change minute by minute, as clouds roll in or the sun peeks out. Fantuzzo has mastered using color and texture to create an atmosphere that captures the land in that fleeting moment. The outcome is a series of quickly captured moments in the field, combining tradition and modernism. “This series is almost pure abstraction with no figurative,” says gallery owner Rebekah Jacob. “They’re highly collectible, and will be around for a long time.” You heard the lady — now’s your chance to snag one.
