Bart’s paintings reflect her engagement with nature and commitment to bringing an open heart to each painting. She captures our relationship to nature with bold brush strokes in expressive skies and a deep love of the landscape. Her paint is thoughtfully laid down, creating views that entice one to enter that world.
Strokes aregestural, paint is luscious.Landscapes are more about capturing the serenity or energy of the quiet places than trying for every leaf and blade of grass. They reflect her reaction to a scene more than actual scene itself. Simplifying. Reducing to essential elements. Sometimes pushing the abstract.
Overall, her aim is to create a refuge from the crazy, busy world where, if only for a few minutes, you can take a breath and then, refreshed, carry on.
