Lolette GuthrieLocated at the south­ern­most tip of the Cape Hat­teras National Seashore, sur­rounded by water and filled with warmth, the tiny island of Ocra­coke, NC, is a spe­cial place. It is a place to heal, relax and find one’s cen­ter. Para­dox­i­cally, it is also where I am reen­er­gized, where I feel most alive, and where I find much of the inspi­ra­tion for my work.

Work­ing in oil or pas­tels, I paint largely from mem­ory reflect­ing on what I expe­ri­enced at a par­tic­u­lar time in a par­tic­u­lar place. I begin a piece with a gen­eral idea of time, place and geom­e­try and then I let the paint­ing tell me where and how far to go. As a result, I am never sure of the out­come because at some point the paint­ing always takes on a life of its own and I am forced to fol­low along. Long inter­est in com­po­si­tion, color rela­tion­ships and the edges of a piece, how­ever, has led to increas­ingly simplified/spare land­scapes and to abstrac­tions derived from these land­scapes.  Regard­less of genre or medium, my paint­ings are also always paint­ings of light and atmos­phere as I strive to cap­ture the light in the air that evokes a mood that is time­less.                       Artist’s Web­site
