'Scapes & Mysteries' Watermedia by Janet Morgan
New York, New York 10001
Nightscapes, imaginary ‘scapes, forms of pure energy and tales of mystery only partially revealed -- choosing art for the beautiful working spaces of TAI was a different task from other exhibitions. It is not only a gallery, but also a place of intense training and inner work. The art was picked to help the mission of TAI. I hope it provides visions of expansion, energy and mystery:
“TAI Exhibits cultivates an intersection between art and business, where people from all walks of life are welcomed into a dynamic, supportive and nurturing environment. As a result, everyone who walks through our doors experiences their own creativity.”
The small nightscapes are a favorite of mine -- created in places far from city lights, late at night by moonlight and starlight. They are driven by an ecstatic appreciation of the night sky, and an attempt to begin to comprehend its vastness. Half were painted in Georgian Bay, Canada, thanks to Katherine Freygang who hosted me there. The other half were painted at the Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, New York, where I have been artist-in-residence many times. I hope as you view these works you too will feel yourself under the deep expanse of space itself.
The vertical paintings, that are depictions of pure energy, began as foundations for figurative work, but insisted that they stand on their own. They are painted with both hands, coming out of the bilateral strengths of the body and a delight in movement and reach. As you stand in front of them feel the movement and color in your own body.
