About the Artist
In all my works I have been concerned with color relationships, creating large color surfaces.
The earlier works show simple relationships of color and line. The point of departure in these works is the center line. From there the structure is folding up towards the edges, and is felt as moving beyond the visual reality, suggesting continuity.In recent works I have introduced organic shapes, such as leaf formations, flower shapes, also markings, circles, and crosses.
The work is about permanence and change, the life''s unending circle. Images of flowers and leaves are metaphors to express life in its ongoing process of change, and are symbols for the passage of time.
The paint medium is a formula comprised of polymer based paints with egg and wax. By washing layer upon layer of translucent paint differences in surface quality occurs, covering the initial drawing. Line is then worked back into the surface, sometimes only suggestively, communicating the feeling of what is to be seen.
In previous years Brigitte has shown her works at the Williams College Museum of Art, Williamstown, Massachusetts, The Ogunquit Museum of American Art, Ogunquit Maine,the Currier Museum, Manchester, New Hampshire, and in galleries in the US and Germany.
Her works are in numerous private, corporate, and museum collections.
