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.”
