Out of the Woods

Piece description from the artist

An outline shape of a woman who is composed of clouds and sky emerges out of a deep green forest. Anyone familiar with the work of the Belgian surrealist master, Rene Magritte, will probably recognize the outline shape motif that I used in this painting. Magritte did quite a few paintings featuring such an outline of a man or a bird, filled with sky. I have always been intrigued by this concept and decided to give it a try, creating my own, unique treatment. I have done multiple paintings involving the forest and woods and always love the challenge of trying to create a realistic forest setting. The stark imagery of the woman emerging from the forest provides a dramatic juxtaposition and to me creates a sort of symbolic image of a woman confidently emerging and the visual of the clouds and sky within the shape of the woman is a reminder that we are all sky – a part of something bigger that none of us can truly comprehend.
