The beauty of nothing

The Beauty of Nothing

Piece description from the artist

Most of my abstract work tends to be very open and delicate with large areas of light or areas to "breathe". In this painting, the large areas have been filled with black, like nothingness. Black is usually used to represent an expanse that, although you can't see what's in there, suggests that there is another space that does exist. Like drifting through your mind in a meditative state, there is a tranquility in the nothingness. The black provides open spaces to fall into, to meditate.

About Halee Roth

Bountiful, UT

At home in her desert oasis, Halee is an avid gardener and rock hound. Her love for all things earth can be seen in her organic art style and in her easy-going personality. As an educator, she taught her art students to reject the tendencies of human nature, or the robot, and assume the laws of nature, finding unity in artwork through free-flowing line, asymmetry, and shape variation. Though classically trained with an emphasis in figure drawing and painting through Utah State University, Halee found that the best way to unwind was by making intuitive washes on paper (a style she has now perfected). This meditative unwind is essential as Halee is mother to three young children. The awards won (for sculpture, if you can believe it) and the years spent teaching art have given way to this new balance of work and family life. The calm feeling you get when you fall deep into contemplation over one of her pieces is exactly the calm she feels while creating and is what keeps her painting in this crazy crazy world.
