Yarrow Summers' Profile
As an intuitive painter I am intrigued by the alchemical transmutation of paint into art, the magic of color interacting with color. The shadow images that appear out of this process lead me through the creation of a painting or an entire series. Composition, color choice and environment evolve spontaneously as I paint.
I am inspired not by what I see, but by how I feel when I observe something that touches me deeply. My paintings are not about technical perfection or rendering specific images realistically. They are instead stories from my imagination and life. Using iconic imagery, they tell of love, spiritual pursuit, personal journeys, moments of perfect grace, disappointment, loss and finally, hope.
I recently started a blog at yarrowsummers.blogspot.com that speaks about my artist's journey and offers mentoring to emerging artists. Check it out!
