About The Artwork

Back in the 1990s while living in Montreal, I visited several of the Caribbean and Bahamas islands to get a break during the winters. Abaco, in the Bahamas, was one island I returned to a few times. A place called Treasure Cay had the most beautiful and quiet beach with clear aqua waters through which one could wade far out before the water became deeper. This piece expresses the light, the aquamarine water, and the white and pale cream sands that I remember. I've also incorporated gold leaf to express sunlight and reflection. The painting is framed in a white satin float frame, and is ready to hang. Size indicated is framed size, actual canvas is 12" x 12"

Madeleine Wories is a printmaker and painter of Dutch heritage. She was born in the Netherlands, raised in Costa Rica and Australia, studied and worked in Montreal, Canada, and now makes her home in Southern California. Her abstracts evolve through an ongoing dialogue with the painting, acting and reacting to the process intuitively. In the spirit of abstract expressionism, through colour, shape, line, texture, marks, gesture and movement, she strives to find a balance between control and spontaneity where intention and unpredictability converge. The paintings start with loose ideas, which then evolve until they take on a life of their own. She is more interested in the emotional response to the painting with the aim to evoke rather than to depict. Rarely using traditional brushes, she prefers diverse tools: scrapers of varying sizes, squeegees, palette knives, rollers, and others. She works on paper, canvas, wood panels, and mixed media collages. She often draws inspiration from the environment: landforms, geology, textures, seas, skies, wind and weather, as well as from current events. Some abstracts, particularly those on paper, may also display a structural quality as a result of her architectural background. With a love for the ocean and of desolate wide open vistas, she also creates landscapes and seascapes which are most often inspired by her coastal location, by the remote desert locations of the American southwest, and by memories of Australia. In these semi-abstract interpretive paintings she endeavors to capture the essence and spirit of the scene, whether it be through light, through movement of water and wind, or through the rawness and tones of the earth. Her work can be found in several corporate and institutional collections, as well as in private collections. She has exhibited in the US, and internationally (Italy, Spain, Belgium, Macedonia, Japan, Canada, Hungary, Senegal, Australia, Denmark and Germany)
