Sylvia Mann is an Artist who’s subject matter is often full of whimsy and joy of the natural world. In This series of work she focuses her considerable talents toward our local landscape. Through painting, scratching and carving of the surface.
In her own words:
“Making art, I feel a freedom to express myself fearlessly. I love strong colors, contrast, and texture. This series of paintings I call “Pacific Northwestern”. The images are inspired by the natural beauty everywhere in our area. Most of the pieces are done on plywood in acrylics, and are loosely referenced from photographs (most of which I’ve taken). I carve through the paint layer back to the wood, retouch, and seal the artwork.”
