Nancy Rutter
Violet Birches in Early Morn (Ethereal Abstracted Landscape Pastel on Paper)

2016

$775

About

12 x 15 inches, pastel on archival paper 18 x 21.5 x 1.5 inches framed, custom white stained wooden frame with white mat and glass This brilliantly colored abstract landscape pastel drawing on paper is inspired by the views of the forrest of Birch trees that are near the artist's studio in the Hudson Valley. This richly colored landscape with shades of violet, pine green and peach evoke a particular sense of place and season, yet remains universal. Rutter's use of radiant hues and tangy color contrasts illuminate with a pervasive sense of light, suggesting a treeline stacked in the horizon. In a style that recall the pure constructions of color and light by expressionist artists Wolf Kahn and Pierre Bonnard, Rutter's pastels draw you into a world of Birch Tree lined woods and sunsets that radiate with an air of spiritual transcendence. Artist Statement: I take my inspiration from nature, fascinated with the tonal interplay of color and form. Columbia County, part of the Hudson Valley in New York State, a special place of varying beauty and vistas where the ever changing atmosphere and patchwork of light and shadows that dance across the views provides me with continual inspirations. I love to rearrange and simplify nature transformed into abstract forms and brilliant color. The seasons can refine the palette, starting from small pastel sketches and then working on a series of canvases which evolve from this starting point to an unpredictable end. This journey, sometimes successful is what keeps me on this course.
