Artist Statement

Paulette Landers
I did not know I could fly
Until I opened my wings
And the Wind became my Muse

My aim is to create a collage where fabric and paint mingle and become integrated.  I work in a non-objective and experimental style as it frees me to be immediate, direct, and in the moment. Abstraction allows me to transcend pictorial representations and communicate to the viewer that which is intangible and illusive such as concepts, mood, and atmosphere.  My work is mostly reflective or meditative on the life I observe around me.  It helps me sort out the chaos and hubbub so that in so doing I may present a different facet of reality.  In creating this work I hope to involve the viewer in an interpretive collaboration.
