Josephine Foote

The beauty and endurance of nature are an antidote to distressing news in the media. Nature’s ability to regenerate gives me hope.

Making a painting is like opening a box of questions: "What’s included?” “What’s excluded?” “What gets moved, removed, or altered?” It’s a conversation between explicitness and obscurity. It’s a game of chase and catch when the sunlight and shadows wink and morph so quickly. It’s a dance of push and pull between bright and muted, warm and cool, light and dark. Although I strive for serenity in my paintings, something unknown often creeps into the pictures.
