Featuring this coming Saturday Artists…
Colour is the strongest inspiration in developing my creative process! Every piece is developed through my individual interpretation of what I see! Thus. This spontaneity is a representation of my personality!
I am in awe of nature. I know I can never really do it justice but, that is the fuel that drives me. That is my passion. My photography is quite varied as I enjoy many different subjects from landscapes to macro. It is my attempt to display the beauty of the world that surrounds us on a daily basis; what we take for granted; what we pass by without seeing. In the digital darkroom, I once again explore the image to accentuate the light, colour, contrast, shape and texture that inspired me to trip the shutter. The results represent the visual narrative of what I see and how I feel.
Mary Ellen Gerster
Mary Ellen Gerster has been a professional artist since 1982, teaching for 30 of those years, displaying her art, both in individual showings and (in concert) with others, including many juried shows. You will find her art in many private collections throughout Canada and the US.
She’s now enjoying painting for pleasure, while showing and selling her works in local galleries and from her Lindsay studio. Light, depth of color and vibrancy in her art is achieved through the layering of transparent colors. In doing a setup to photograph, to create a watercolour painting her focus is on composition, light, color and subject matter. People frequently look at her work and comment, “That’s a watercolour painting?”
