OUR CURRENT RESIDENT ARTIST IS KIM HENRY. SEE HER AT THE WILTON LIBRARY MONDAY, NOVEMBER 17, AT 6:00.
Natural beauty is visible at many levels: a satellite image from outer space, an aerial photograph through the clouds, a panoramafrom a mountain top, a ground-level view across an open field, or a top-down perspective through standing water. I am interested in the landscape within a landscape, the microcosm that is revealed on closer inspection: the world that emerges from the surface of a pool, the cavern at the foot of a tree trunk, the forest growing in a patch of grass, or the glacier advancing across a frozen puddle. To date, my use of mixed media has captured the color and texture of the landscape at a traditional scale. My goal for the residency is to "zoom in," to focus on subtleties in color and textural details that capture the essence of nature in a more abstract way and reveal the landscape within a landscape. The Weir Farm residency will allow me to focus my artist's eye and my practice as an artist. I look forward to the opportunity to develop a daily practice of observing, sketching, and creating over a period of several weeks, something I have not been able to accomplish in everyday life.
