Featured Artist for October - Vita Sims
This grouping of images gives the viewer a taste of my journey. My paintings reveal my experience of the natural world reduced to its most fundamental forms. Using color, line, shape and texture, I paint intuitively and spontaneously, capturing my emotional and sensory experiences. The paintings reflect a distillation of my memories into vibrant colors, shapes and textural patterns. Some of the images are plein air painted. The abstract images are part of an ocean series I am working on. Strong influences include Matisse, Vuillard, Van Gogh, Diebenkorn and Joan Mitchell.
