VICKY LENTZ

Artist Statement 

 

I maintain an intimate relationship with the environment living in an isolated forest.  As a young child in the wilds surrounding the family farm in the Ottawa Valley, there was a constant sense of discovery and wonder.  This deep sense of wonder persists in the artistic discoveries made in my forest studio.  

 

My acute human senses developed and honed to perceive minute changes in the natural environment. Through concentrated listening and seeing, a dialogue occurs with the other.  Moments of grace deepen this connection and nourish the art that develops from this life lived as a witness.

 

As I search for innovative ways to express our human interaction with the environment, I explore several mediums.  Through paint, recycled metal, found materials and clay, the transformation and fluidity of life remains a constant theme.  Mining beneath the surface, the liquid motion of life searches for structure and form.  Repetition and pattern are ways for me to enter into this felt, meditative dialogue.

 

Parallel to the work of Agnes Martin or the contemporary work of the Ontario artist, Dorothy Caldwell, the underlying, invisible natural structure is sensed and expressed in visual form.  As our modern human populations continue to concentrate in the large urban areas across the globe, this singular, rural life lived in a direct, sensitive dialogue with nature is richly significant. Through my research in paint, sculpture and installations I share this life of connection.
