Memories of being in the natural world inspire the color and gesture of the paintings. Gardens, overgrown fields, open space, the sea and wind are all a source from which the paintings evolve. Color and light fascinate me, how one color placed next to another comes alive, how that color then has the profound ability to evoke a mood or a place. While my process is intuitive, the presence of the landscape is constant. Yet, there is uncertainty of place and of resolution. I find this ambiguity most exciting.Maria Malatesta
