With this series of mixed media landscapes
Forsythe speaks to the colors and natural beauty of Maui. These
are fabrications, fantasies and memories of a romanticized landscape
as the artist explores the movement of sky, sea and land across
the island. These works are meant to remind us of how movement affects
one's ability to confine nature's splendor to one single image.
"I aspire to replicate what nature
so effortlessly creates. The speed of life can easily turn one's
view into a polychromatic blur. Images grounded in reality yet fleeting.
Flowing yet re-ordered. Constantly moving yet just beyond one's
grasp. A multihued vibrant world that is dreamlike. A view of sky,
sea and land in a world that never stops transforming."
~ Brad Forsythe
