MIMI ORITSKY

ARTIST STATEMENT
My working process involves the quality of airspace and how it can be translated into paint.  While drawing the elements from above, I am aware of how we lose eye-level perspective and normal angles.  These losses force me to explore space, scale, and time.  In moving away from the aerial sense of perspective, but remaining above the view, I watch the air as it is contained within its pre-defined spatial parameters.  When I am moving fast, as on a moving train, the elements seem to have a sense of urgency, a desire to catch up, within the vast stillness of the airspace.  The series of rock and tree debris is inspired by a random and scattered landscape while my rose and office groups by open areas with changing viewpoints.  In this sense I come to terms with my environment to create a space organized by light and a surface marked by the rhythm of the moving air.
