Kathy Anderson

I was very shy as a child and immersed myself in nature and with animals, spending a lot of time at my Grandmother’s house in what was then the country out East on Long Island, NY. From this, and my mother’s beautiful gardens that she tended with love, my lifelong passion for these subjects has evolved. Combining birds and flowers for this special show depicting a rebirth of the earth was a joy for me.

Stephanie Birdsall

“There has never really been anything I wanted to do, other than paint. I never travel without my supplies. There is so much beauty around us and I don’t want to miss an opportunity to capture a beautiful moment, be it a desert landscape or a glorious flower garden or simply light with its unique ability to transform whatever I am looking at. Painting is about seeing, each in our own individual way.”

Scott Conary

I approach painting as a sculptural process as much as a consideration of light, color, mark, and so on. It’s a repeated gathering, building up, and tearing down of material. I use a brush, painting knife, old credit card, brayer, splash of solvent, my hand. Most anything. Whatever it takes to uncover and build that tenuous sense of weight, presence, and mystery that I’m looking for. This approach, as it strips down the subject and knits the painting together, can make it feel real in a way that a more deliberative, tidy, and accurate rendering may not.

John Felsing

I never really look for a painting; I simply keep the channels open as I walk the fields near home. A painting is as much about calling tree frogs and a distant train, the fragrance of dying leaves, as it is about what is visible. I am not interested in reproducing what is visible, but in attempting to make things visible. Not until I visit a place repeatedly, do I feel enough intimacy to attempt a painting; only then does one realize that art grows out of love.

Quang Ho

The real essence of painting is the dialogue between shapes, tones, colors, textures, edges, and line. Everything else follows—including light, form, concepts, personal beliefs, and inspirations.

Eric Jacobsen

My love of flowers started early on. It was nurtured by my mother’s keen eye and love for all things petalled. One of the things she liked to do was pick wildflowers on our walks and arrange them in a vase once she got home. She still does this and thanks to her, so do I. She keeps a bevy of unique smallish vases on her kitchen window sill and in her cupboard for the purpose of displaying her found treasures. Her vases are employed and full from February’s first offering….blossoming snowdrops from the base of a granite hillside nearby ‘till the seasons last gift of purple aster in October. My mom has maintained an extensive flower “picking” garden over the years which she cultivates and cares for with the help of my dad, also a flower lover. From it, she creates beautiful arrangements all summer long and well into the fall. Her bouquets include everything from peonies to zinnias and gladiolus to sunflowers, whatever happens, to be in bloom. Her arrangements are visually stimulating and bring warmth to the home. Simply put, I love flowers because my mom taught me to love flowers. Flowers remind me of my mom.

Daniel Keys

One of the things that I love in travel, going into mountains and national parks, is the little tiny flowers in fields. It is amazing to me the resilience of these tiny little, you know, organic matter. They have no regard for the time, they just grow, they have always existed and will continue to do so as far as we know. Whether anyone sees them or not, they just bloom.

Shanna Kunz

“I’m not interested in detailed realistic painting. Art is emotional for me. It isn’t about reality or making something look like a picture. It’s about the feelings behind the imagery.”

Sherrie McGraw

Abstract Realism applies to painting in oil, first and foremost. The painting is “real” because you can recognize an object, but it is “abstract” because the color, paint quality, value, edges, and composition are used in very abstract ways to affect the viewer visually and carry the eye through the painting. The concept comes first and is the result of conscious editing by the artist. Plain and simple, nothing goes in unless it furthers that idea. And a detail never goes in just because it is there.

Paul Rhymer

When I decided to start painting again, last year, I picked up where I left off over 20 years ago. I hadn’t painted seriously since then. When I was painting back in the early days it was very illustrative, that’s why I feel like my painting style has a scientific illustration/sketchbook/studies feel to it. I like the watercolor…my grandmother, a member of the American Watercolor Association, sent me the paints I used in these works when I was living in Swaziland. I have supplemented these with Winsor Newton and whatever I can find.

Kathleen Speranza

Since my flower paintings feel more like portraits than still lives I suddenly had a wealth subjects ready to pose. During the long weeks of lock down a few positive things were happening. The human world had suddenly slowed down enough for the natural world to take center stage. The unusual quiet and stillness allowed us the opportunity for a deeper meditation on our vital connection to nature. In some ways it felt like many other people were entering the silent and reverent world that painters inhabit all the time. It was a strange but very welcome development. I hope that these paintings will help the viewer connect for a while to that deeply satisfying and important state of mind.

Adrienne Stein

My work reanimates historical painting genres forming a bridge to the present with fresh insight and imagery. The worlds I paint are inhabited by figures, folklore, archetypes, and natural elements that are fueled by a sense of personal as well as universal myth. Subjects are reinterpreted in lush and magical environments that form the nexus between reality and fantasy, expressed through an unconscious world of symbolic imagery.

Kathryn Mapes Turner

My need to create flows from the privilege of participating in the miraculous nature of the creative process rather than rendering some notion of a perfect product. The creative process is a confluence of nature’s inspiration and my personal interpretation of what I am experiencing. I strive to create paintings that record my own experience of the subject's essential spirit and energy, not an imitation of a fixed surface reality.

TURNER FINE ART PLANS BLOOMING EXHIBITION
JH NEWS & GUIDE

As the snow recedes off south-facing buttes and low-lying flats, Indian potatoes and sagebrush buttercups are starting to bloom. While the human residents of Jackson Hole are isolated and distressed, the ecological processes of spring are proceeding as normal, unaware of our plight. It is this sentiment that, in part, gave rise to Turner Fine Art’s coming exhibition, “While We Were Still … Flowers Bloomed.”
April 21, 2020
