Between II Worlds
by Lisa Eurgain Taylor

‘Between II Worlds’ is a series of paintings existing somewhere between reality and fantasy. They are imaginary, otherworldly and mystic places, but have been inspired by the striking mountains of Snowdonia.

Artist statement:
The paintings convey positivity and hope as light penetrates intensely through the shadows. The darkness conveys the more difficult aspects of life, but the brighter colours, in marked contrast, show that there is light to be found behind every cloud or murkiness.

I have combined two techniques in line with the duality of the paintings, namely lino printing and brush painting. The craggy texture created by the lino contrasts with the gentleness of brush strokes in the background.

A flow of memories forms the greater part of each painting. As opposed to painting specific scenery, I have focused on memories and emotions gleaned from visits to the mountains. The paintings provide comfort and enable you to escape the real world which can, at times, be such an intense place.

The paintings are set in the distant past – where there are no roads or pylons, and no sign of humanity. I have attempted to create a peaceful and calm atmosphere in a pure world untouched by Man.

I hope to inspire those who view the paintings to see something new in them and to interpret their own ideas and feelings whilst viewing the work. I stress the importance of not taking our beautiful landscape for granted, and that the natural world should be protected at all costs. We must take good care of the earth and of each other.
