About this Piece

In her artist's statement, Harnden says, "The tree forms continue to inspire me because they are universal, completely ordinary and extraordinary all in one. Trees are beautifully linear, gestured as the human body and they encompass the spectrum of frailty to monumental strength. When moving through a painting I engage myself philosophically and aesthetically with the coexistence of natural polarities. Examples of this would be: a delicate transient leaf and its counterpart the supporting solid trunk, or storm winds in contrast to human breath. As I consider these contrarities, my work flows between my real experience with natural environments and the process of painting abstract interpretations."

About the Artist

In her artist's statement, Marci Crawford Harnden says, "Between impulse and self imposed structure I consistently use botanical reference, skeletal tree forms and atmospheric light to express my aesthetic intentions. My passion for observation and experimental process is distilled into the illusions found in these works. I intend to create an intimate sense of landscape as I push the scale to greater degrees. My intention is to feel enveloped and connected with nature, not to stand apart from it."
