"My palette is informed and inspired by light and shadow, the earth, the body and afterimages."
Scottish born artist Gwen Hardie lives and works in NYC.
Hardie sees the canvas as an object, painting into its shape and transforming the flat square into a three dimensional illusion. Balancing one colour against another as if under magnification, she blends seamless gradients of tone and saturation between them, to present a radiant foreground that hovers and glows. She takes inspiration from colour, light and shadow in nature - in particular how warm and cool colours interact to create varying depths of field.
Her work is in private and public collections such as The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, the British Council, London, and the Calouste Gulbenkian Modern Collection, Lisbon.
