Valerie Lennon About
I am an artist. I am a conceptional expressionist. I am a painter that creates my ideas through color, shape, and composition.
My artistic strength is my choice and use of color. I spread these colors on my canvas using varying values and shape and line. I use the paint transparent and opaque to create these shapes and planes. As I enter the creative exploration of painting I think about varying brush strokes, juicy application of paint and sizzling complements of color.
In the beginning I think little of my subject, losing myself in this very challenging process. All of these concepts help me to create my figurative florals and landscapes, which are unique to me. My figurative paintings are stories, memories, and moments in time. I am inspired by Matisse who spoke to these moments in his masterpieces with features not being the important part of painting. I let you, the observer, be a part of the creative process using your unique imagination.
I want my paintings to give joy, humor, and happiness. I want to feel these emotions upon viewing the art in my home.
