Thinking of Cezanne, from Deb Clarke
From, deb Clarke;
Here’s a quick recap of my Memorial Day on East Main. Here are 2 pics: one is my reference material looking down on Joey’s docks across to the State Fish Pier with the city and western shore in the far distance, with a bit of green in the sky caused by the Canadian woodfires’ haze. I’ve been thinking alot about Cezanne and how he made plane changes in his paintings. Cezanne wanted to create a painting with the solidity of a sculpture. He didn’t rely on a directed light to illuminate objects; instead, he emphasized the form and organization of the picture plane through the direction of his stroke and color changes. The light seems to come from ‘within Cezanne’s paintings’. In my work in progress I’ve paid particular attention to the way planes meet. My space is getting a bit wonkie, and I am very interested in the spot that is in the very center of my painting.
Deb’s “Wall of Art” can be seen if your driving on East Main St. towards Bass Ave, on the right side of the road between Capt. Joe’s Lobsters (Joey’s place) and Zeke’s Restaurant.
