DORIS SIMON: "MOUNTAIN PANORAMAS"
MAY 6 - MAY 29, 2022
Inspired by the magnificent Berkshire landscapes, Doris Simon has been painting there for the past 20 years. In this body of work, abstraction and landscape combine to create scenes that are purely imagined yet almost recognizable. The viewer may see mountains or other elements of the landscape, but they are conjured up from an illusive place in the mind of the artist that is filled with vivid colors and textures. Some are painted with acrylics in soft tones where the brushwork captures a mood of the peace and serenity of nature. The landscape is present with or without the horizon but the abstract quality is a continuation of Simon’s non-objective painting style. The viewer is invited into the experience through the lushness of light and form.
