Piece description from the artist
This soft, muted view of morning through the trees was painted in layers with lots of texture. I painted it digitally so it could be available in large sizes. The files size is 8000×8000px at 300dpi.
Although she now lives in Hawaii, Trish Sierer’s trajectory towards becoming an artist started with her grandmother in South Texas. She spent every summer with her paternal grandmother who, on most nights, would spend the night drawing and painting with her into the early morning hours. Meanwhile, Trish’s maternal grandfather was becoming an avid painter as well. So it was inevitable that she would become an artist in her own right.
Trish has a great passion for conservation and ecology that comes through in her work. She draws inspiration from water and vegetation. Trish has an eternal fascination with how leaves get their shape or how nature at its most basic consists of geometric lines. The bee, in particular, started her down this path. Where everything a bee is, lives in, and creates is hexagonal.
This, mixed with her appreciation for mid-century modern architecture, combines to form the crux of her work. At times playful, her work always seeks to bring attention to the organic and constantly evolving world we live in. Painting with both physical paint, as well as digital paint, Trish is always experimenting with new media. Whether it is gouache, ink, wood, clay, or iPad, the possibilites are endless.
With her work, Trish hopes to inspire others on this planet to stop and really look at nature. This, she hopes, will bring environmental consciousness to the forefront of the minds of all people living on this earth. Only then, when we appreciate the world around us, will we do all we can to make sure we leave it as we found it. Just as her grandmother always told her.
