“Desert in Bloom”

A Series of Paintings by Ana-Maria Santos

Exhibition: April 2 – 30, 2021

Exhibition closes at 3pm on Friday, April 30

Museum Gallery Hours: Tues – Sat from 10am-5pm

 

Artist Statement:

April in Arizona does something exceptional, it turns a seeming wasteland into a vibrant canvas. While visiting a friend out West I was struck by the lush color and form of the local flora. I have always responded powerfully to the colors, forms, movement, and light around me and I invite the viewer to experience the world through my own particular lens.  My art is about reaction, my visceral response to the world around me whether it is a flower that fills an inch of space or miles of landscape. Composition, subtle variations of color and value, along with quick brushwork to capture a sense of drama and immediacy.  Ours is a fast-paced, overwhelming world.  The zoomed-in, snapshot like quality of my work encourages focus; inviting the viewer to take a closer look at simple pleasures of the world around them. 

– Ana-Maria Santos
