Artist Reception – Reid Thorpe
Date: September 2, 2022
Time: 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Location: Tettegouche State Park Visitor's Center
My philosophy of creating art branches from a solid foundation in aesthetics, the study and exploration of beauty. I use the elements of color and line to create tension and harmony within my work, discovering the balance of beauty and interest that each work demands. Through this process, I strive to capture the beauty and intention within each scene I paint.
My current work explores the concept or feeling of nostalgia within fragmented landscapes using reflection ? and the interplay between sky and water. I use reflections of water and fragments of sky to create juxtaposition within the work. I exaggerate the mosaic in negative spaces in contrast with the smooth quality of water. Whether walking outdoors alone or with my family, I search for these views through trees featuring colors, sky, and reflection.
Come meet the artist. It’ll be fun! This show will run through the end of the month.
