Nature inspired large scale abstract paintings by Seattle artist Quincy Anderson are richly textured canvases of acrylic paint, oil ink and silk tissue collage. The intricate surface embossment and reflective quality of glazing enhance layers of images that appear and disappear as the viewer moves around the paintings. Anderson's use of complex color harmonies and reflective light evoke the lush marine environment and changing seasons of the northwest.
Calligraphic lines, enigmatic symbols and images of flowing water give these elegant works a distinctly Asian sensibility, creating a beautiful balance between organic shapes that echo each other and a geometric rhythm that establishes the architecture of the composition. The sense of space and movement leads the viewer to a place of peaceful contemplation.
Artists Statement - “I am fascinated by the way water transforms light--creating reflected images on the surface and refracted images underneath. I am also mesmerized by the movement of waves through water--how the harmonic content of different wave patterns intersect and how they magnify and then telescope all of the layers of images above and below.
Water is nature's mirror. Shapes and patterns repeat and disappear. Water has the power to imprint or erase---impressions of waves in the sand dissolve into memories and dreams. Deep water hides the secrets of the past and whirlpools hold the energy for transformations and divinations of the future.
The smooth undulation of waves at sea, the concentric ripples caused by a single rain drop in a tide pool, the chaotic disturbance of wind on a pond ...and a morning mist that erases everything. ”
