This exhibition is an invitation to spend time with 7 abstract paintings, to allow them to take the lead on a personal journey into your imagination and emotions.

Sit. Look. Observe how a painting makes you feel. How the colours, pattern, forms, textures relate to one another, and to you, the viewer. It is natural to try and make sense of a painting. But have you ever considered that a painting need not make sense to anyone, not even Artist? Have you heard an Artist refer to being in the zone, the sweet spot, in a flow state? Maybe you have been there too. Who's to say that a painting need not make any sense to be enjoyed and revelled in, just because it exists, creative energy made manifest.

Abstract art can be bewildering and uncomfortable. Here in the boreal forest of Haliburton Highlands we are familiar with the landscape painting genre; paintings of sky, water, rocks and trees. The seven paintings you see here "In The Zone" come from a different zone. Let them paint their way into your consciousness. You may be surprised at the nooks and crannies you recognize or discover in your own head and heart.
