"These serene works open spaces of quiet contemplation. They are grounded in nature where you can almost hear the leaves moving and the water chattering. On closer inspection the brushwork in these pieces are loose and expressive. The medium itself is exploited through the layering of paint and the marks themselves. The layers of paint are varied and built up with strong colours that eventually give way to the softer tones of nature, just hinting at what lies beneath. The individual brush marks are varied in weight and importance, thus creating movement and giving life to these scenes." Alicja
This is the first series of Alicja’s work to explore the Catchpool Valley in the Remutaka Range, New Zealand. The valley is rich with inspiration with a river, Nikau grove and mature podocarp/broadleaf forest.
Others in the Catchpool series are Golden Light, Chattering Waters, Forest Bathing, Morning Light, Pathway Through The Trees, The River Whispers and Still Reflections.
