Sarah Jane Conklin

Artist Statement 

Atlantic Canada’s romantic landscape and wild beauty has inspired me for over 20 years. Our diverse forests, meandering brooks, waterfalls and change of season provide endless inspiration to me. These elements of nature in a kaleidoscopic environment are my primary interest. Motion and mystique are created through deliberate entanglements of brushstrokes, rich colour contrast, the chance effect of impasto, and the innate luminosity of oil paint. Painting alla prima allows every painting to exude it’s own energy and excitement. I want viewers to escape, even for a brief moment, into my romantic world.
