Artist’s Statement: Elizabeth Perkins

I paint in order to explore the effects of light on forms in the natural world.  Flowers, close-up, present a fascinating panorama of translucence and reflected light: transforming colors and rendering the contours of petals in abstract ways.  I welcome you to the world that I enter as I paint their images.  Pause, breathe and rest, in these interpretations of nature.
