[PAINTING] Lilian Garcia Roig

Lilian Garcia-Roig says:

"My formal painting concerns have led me to use the conservative landscape as my subject and traditional plein-air painting as my process, in my attempts to reconcile the abstract nature of painting with its representational role. From a distance, I draw the viewer into what is first perceived as a dense but conventional space. Up close, however, the images break down; the lush, gestural paint marks, squeezed-out paint patches and areas of raw canvas help, instead, to reinforce the 2-D character of abstract painting as both an activity and an end-product.

By definition, plein-air painting means to work on-site, to experience nature first-hand. For me, this seemingly passé mode of painting is today injected with new relevance and urgency as it helps underscore how removed most of our own experiences and even images of nature have become. In my works, I want the viewer to discover how the landscape reveals itself in cumulative and unexpected ways. Ways that will hopefully create a desire to engage more fully, directly and positively in our own environment and to do so before it is too late. (source)
