February & March Exhibit
Show Title: Nature's Chorus
Artist: Annette Wolters
Annette Wolter’s show, Nature’s Chorus, reawakens our spirits and leads us towards spring. These paintings remind us to absorb the regenerative beauty of nature.
Whether an ‘En plein air’ landscape, floral garden, or still life, Annette’s paintings have a strong emotional component. The colors blend effortlessly and are filled with light. The viewer may even experience echoes of music, which is not surprising, considering what Annette shares in her artist statement!
A Statement by the Artist
Annette Talks about her process and Nature’s Chorus
Modern Open-Impressionism best describes my work. It is limitless, creative, and stimulating. I find that nature, as a subject matter, gives me a special feeling and sensitivity that I can express in an impressionistic way.
I focus primarily on landscapes and florals using selective values and palettes of color to stimulate the viewer’s own individual experience.
When I seek inspiration, I go to nature. I once had my entire easel blow over at Gold Lake when the winds gusted up to 35 knots. I’ve backpacked the Sierras, hiked the Yuba River, and photographed and sketched remote areas in the Lakes Basin and western states.
In my studio I often set up a still life from my garden augmented by garlic, berries, and avocado. I brew a cup of tea, put on my favorite music, and paint with vigor and energy, sometimes dancing.
My mentors of the past are all French impressionists. I have been able to travel and spend time in their homeland as I am in close contact with my French family. I feel very connected to Van Gough, Monet, Bonnard, and creatively lifted by Marc Chagall. They all give me energy for life and expression.
I owe many thanks to my family, most of whom are artists themselves.
I am excited by the opportunity to bring Nature’s Chorus to Nevada City Winery’s Art Gallery with its beautiful location and ambiance.
