Barbara Langmaid, painter Powell Rive
"Allan" is from a series of full length portraits from the last two years. "Harwood" is an ongoing theme and image I've used since moving to Powell River, and "Plaint" below, is the title of a poem by Theodore Roethke (American 1908-1963), another series of paintings based on his works.
A transplant from California, I find myself profoundly moved by the landscape in which I live... my oil paintings are a response to this landscape and include an interior perspective as well, using vessels as metaphors, a looking in as well as out. My work also reflects my love of literature and literary devices... presence in absence, time/space, unresolved narrative.
