“Painting based on color and composition captivates my creativity, and painting in this abstract or non-objective way frees my mind. I do enjoy painting realism, but my freedom in the abstract grabs my attention to create new and visually exciting spaces on my surface. It’s an escape through creativity; I’m able to let go of my current reality and enter my own abstract reality.” -Sarah Gatewood
“Perception through Reflection” explores the traditional categories of “portrait” and “landscape” through each artist’s creative lens. The variety of interpretations flows through the spectrum of realism into fantasy and abstraction.
