4/16/12: Watercolor Paintings and Nature Photography by Liza Carter
The watercolor paintings and nature photography of Concord artist Liza Carter will be on display from May through October at Emerson Medical at Sudbury, located at 490 Boston Post Road (Route 20 in Chiswick Park).
Carter, who works out of Concord-based Emerson Umbrella Center for the Arts, said her goals as an artist are to “beguile and captivate” viewers into a loving and caring relationship with the natural world using the medium of art. An environmental scientist by training, she has always focused on the relationship between humans and their environments; first through environmental advocacy, later through education and now through art. Believing that beauty can be an instrument of social change, she aspires to create art that reconnects viewers with the beauty of nature.
“For me, the reason to paint is not to duplicate nature, but to evoke and amplify the emotions generated by looking at an object in nature. By offering a visual image, one bypasses the verbal world that ‘explains’ and in the process distances the viewer from the object,” she said. “I want my paintings to access the viewer’s heart so they can be immediately flooded by an emotion and drawn into a painting without necessarily knowing why. Color, composition, subject, value, line, depth or size can all open the metaphoric doors in the viewer; emotion can be laughter, stillness, or pleasure with all points in between.”
