This event has ended.

Jacinda Bayne’s solo exhibit, Merging Landscapes provides a space for the viewer to breathe and to take time to reflect upon personal experiences. These large scale, evocative canvases are a fusion of experiences, memories and thoughts, light filtering through trees and water, suspended in time.

Open fields of color, smooth gradients of blues/turquoise, familiar landforms, a clearing in a forest and calm waters reflect
the world above and below.

Color is always an integral part of the process which evokes emotion toward what we are seeing. Glazes of oil paint fall into considered areas
and pathways. The work is smooth, fluid and rich in pigment. Seemingly accidental runs of paint are expertly controlled and purposely
placed to lead the eye through the composition. The scale of the works intend to allow the viewer to immerse themselves within
the work and quiet the noise of the outside world.

Carefully placed, bridges, trees and bodies of water all elicit quietude and reflection. Inspired by natural beauty, Jacinda returns to her
collection of sketches, photographs and paint palettes, where the endless combinations of colors create an internal dialogue.
Her combination ofcolor, light and imagery trigger one’s own sense of place.

To be in the moment within these sublime and enchanted spaces is where the artist wants us to be. Frozen waterfalls, fire flies and shards of
light are some of the visual triggers merged into these works below the surface of rich transparent color.

One can stand on the water’s edge and gaze through the trees on to its unattainable beauty. In the hustle of New York City, Jacinda draws
us in to windows of imagination, reflection and personal space. These ambiguous landscapes provide an opportunity to dream,
be in the moment, connect and belong.
