Artist's Statement

This work is part of the ongoing series The Landscape of Memory.

By combining both realism with the many techniques favored by the surrealists, including the alteration of space, perspective, tonality, focus, manipulation, the content of the image is then open to the viewer's personal interpretation.   Memories are visceral, they are not dependent upon a strict visualization of an event or a scene recreation. Rather, they often surface, sometimes unexpectedly, triggered by visual clues, sounds, smells, which serve to remind us of an experience, a feeling or component of life.

This manipulation of visual space, is defined with the intent of creating a sense of unreality, to provoke the viewer to perceive these altered perspectives of life differently.   Within the picture plane anything is possible. It becomes like a window; and in our minds, to see briefly or reflect upon.

June Kaplan

Artist Statement

i paint horses for love, for the love of a

friend who lives in the South. It is this

labor of love that i find i out do myself.

in going beyond my preconceived

notions i have created a body of work

that hangs together so to speak.

it is harrowing at times, i have lost many

good pieces in the process-yet with each

journey i learn to allow myself to

leave the studio let the

image dry to wait for another time, have  coffee, get into HG or

start a new canvas.

the one idea i wish to express is i believe

with no uncertain terms, that when i ask for help from The Gods i undoubtedly

receive divine intervention to create to

the best of my ability good works.
