The Language of Objects
With a quiet mind approach, Cary considers the shapes of common objects, the reflections, the sleek lines and the soft and hard edges. An endless variety of patterns of light and dark fascinate her.
The world around us is constantly moving, things are moving at lightning speed. In fact movement seems to be the comfort zone that our world knows. The idea of sitting still and just settling into the space of stillness seems to be a foreign notion, a radical concept.
And yet there is magic that happens in this space of stillness that simply cannot happen in the space of continual movement. There is a purity and serenity that simply cannot be found anywhere else.
I love painting this stillness. It has that quiet that I crave. I love the shapes of common objects, the reflections, the sleek lines and the soft and hard edges. The endless variety of patterns of light and dark fascinate me. I revel in the experience of working with paint creating the illusion of form and a flat surface and the ongoing challenge of seeing and learning more each time.
Painting is exhilarating, challenging and personally revealing. It has given me a new view on life and experiences beyond my imagination
