Art and creating for me has always been and will be for future days to come, a search for the beautiful and the sublime in nature. Annual visits to Sudbury and other sketching trips to northern Ontario in the spring and fall is where I find inspiration for potential paintings. My brush strokes are thick and thoughtfully expressed. My work consists of landscapes expressed in an impressionistic style. I enjoy plein air painting as well as studio painting.
 
 
 
 
 

 

OPEN FIELD GALLERYKatherine Diemert Image 1

Mirror Landscape
Presented by Katherine Diemert

Exhibition Duration:  August 12 to September 6, 2019

 

Inspired by the waveforms found in open water and cloudy skies, the box’s landscape comprises mainly of undulating layers of vellum. The only characters in the scene are a dark sun hanging in the sky, and a figure leaning into the waves, looking to the viewer. While making this scene, she was thinking about how the box would eventually live outside, in our own landscape. In almost any landscape painting there are a few key elements: a ground, a sky, and some celestial body. There’s a certain symmetry that happens too, especially when looking across our nearby lake, of the waves on the ground mirroring the voluminous clouds in the sky. These are suggested by the spray painted acetate sheets layered along the ground and top plane of the box. Meanwhile, the circular black sun/moon against the backdrop of reflective gold feels as if it’s been cut out from the sky. It felt too straightforward with just the three elements however, and so she decided to include a figure. The figure in the foreground has a circular face made of mirrored gold. Now she wonders if there might be a mythical story there, a little drama amongst the waves and clouds found in this box.
