Passing Squall

A breaker, rolling into sunlight under a hole in the clouds, was the first thing that started me thinking about painting this oil. Like a spotlight on the stage, well placed sunlight in a painting illuminates the story an artist hopes to tell. Out on the horizon, in another patch of sunlight, sits the lighthouse on Tillamook Rock. Breakers and dune grass, lighthouse and sunlight, it can be that simple.

Artists Talk with Deborah DeWit

Cannon Beach, Oregon

Deborah DeWit: “Boundaries and Horizons” New Paintings

Deborah DeWit is a well-known Oregon artist whose narrative paintings often explore autobiographical subjects that express familiar human experiences through beautifully rendered scenes that convey moments in time. For this new exhibition “Boundaries and Horizons” DeWit states “These paintings continue my attempt to capture the essence of my experience– living on four and half acres on the edge of an estuary, surrounded by woods, bordered by the sea, in a hundred year old house on the North Oregon Coast.  If it is possible to find all the universal truths, the elemental memories, in one place, I mean to find them here.  My observations and thoughts become imagery.”

DeWit’s mature painting style has developed over the course of her lengthy career, which began as a photographer in late 1970’s. DeWit now has several books published on her work, highlighting her overarching themes in photography, writing, oil painting and pastels. Her current paintings are naturalistic depictions in oil that combine loose expressive brushwork and layers of paint in a realistic style to capture essential details of a time and place. Many of her paintings also suggest metaphors about the larger human experience through the interplay of indoor and outdoor environments in her sensitive and thought-provoking compositions.

Helga Winter: Sculptural Paintings: Paper & Mixed Media

Known throughout the Pacific Northwest for her woodturnings, Helga Winter’s newest endeavor is the creation sculptural paintings that are made from deconstructed books. Winter uses unwanted book pages – the papers are rolled, colored and waxed to form compositions where the original book’s knowledge is hidden. These mixed media pieces are intriguing in both the reformulation of material as well as in the way they suggest the rethinking and reshaping of what has been learned, opening avenues for new truths.
