"The divisions in many of my pieces are metaphorical for the cellular division of living things or the bright horizontal edges observed in heavenly bodies... The rings of Saturn, the edges of galaxies seen from afar, the genesis of hot spinning stars..." - Gretchen Ewert
Exquisitely, Gretchen Ewert paints a portrayal of a solar system, or even greater, a universe. Or quite possibly, the artist composes a composition that illustrates something beyond human understanding. With color and shape, she reveals mystery and even question to her scene. An approachable, warm-colored core is then extended along a horizon of deep blue. Its orbit, painted in light blue and green, exercises peculiar relief while then embracing blushes of yellow and speckles of blue in the outer regions of space. Immersing in the artist's excitable rendering of the unknown, the eye cannot look away as it irrevocably succumbs to curiosity and peace.
