THE ECHOES SERIES - LANDSCAPES AND CRYSTALS - October 26 - November 8, 2011

Marilyn Blumer Cochrane


Opening Reception: Wednesday October 26, 6 - 8 PM

 


I begin my creative process with the stones. These natural minerals and crystals are nature's artworks - mysterious and beautiful. They are the inspiration for the paintings, each one my response to the energy, lines and colours of the stone that I am contemplating.
Each painting is created with about twenty glazes of colour, every layer adding to the richness of the image.
Echoes flow, circling between my painted landscapes and these natural jewels from the earth.
Marilyn Blumer Cochrane is an award winning artist, interpreting Canadian landscape painting in a new and unique way. She incorporates a rich juxtaposition of natural crystals with her painted landscapes.
She has graduated with fine Arts Honours from: McGill university, Montreal; Ontario College of Art and Design (OCAD), Toronto, and The American College of Art, Paris France
