Micheal Zarowsky – Artist’s statement.

Painting for me is a lot of things, but simply, overall it is the journey. The paintings are places visited, places I was able to lose myself in the world while exploring a particular relationship with it – grounding myself while soaring free at the same time – the point of new beginnings.

As the saying goes, at the still point the dance begins.

The landscapes are meditative in so far that our underlying and connecting commitment

to Nature through them is all about light and water, neither of which can be painted directly

I paint light, atmosphere and the transparency of water to Nature through them. It becomes all about light and water, neither of which can be painted directly:

Treating light as pure source the paintings are an expression / realization of its effects; You can only paint the effects of light. Water being transparent, always different, lets us explore/express it through the very reflections that outline it is movement, try to confine it. The reflected sky above reaching down, the sandy bottom, rocks and grasses all reaching up towards the surface, the changing colours of the forested rivers edges trying to define, shape and contain it. I end up painting everything but the very thing I seek to paint.
