Geraldine Scalia
ARTIST STATEMENT

   I am walking down the road, or through the woods. And if I stop to look at something further and am drawn-in, something probably stirs in my heart, internally. If I want to transform this moment and vision into a lasting experience then there is a strong pull to memorialize it as a painting. It is an added bonus if the viewer has a similar transcendental experience.      My paintings are not recordings of reality. I certainly don’t detail everything; there are cameras that do that.  In fact, if my work can maintain a captivation with less, usually they say so much more with some magical aspect. There was a reason, for instance, that I choose “those two buildings” or “that tree”.  Often it was the time of day and the light that made the motif more interesting.    
   My work is varied. I am mostly posting observational landscapes.
I am also using this venue to display a few sculptures.  And for further diversity, I plan to create a collection of Drawings that were proposals for 3-D pieces. These were working drawings for potential pieces. I enjoy the use of poetic phraseology that opens the pieces to more levels of interpretation.       
   I appreciate the opportunity of showing my work on this commercial art site.
 
  I have some images in the "private" section. They are proposals for "Aviary Shrines, Building a Nest Together". Very different than the rest on this site and also to some, erotic. Please inquire if you are interested in viewing these or more of my portfolio.
