Macek is TLCo’s Artist in Residence for March and April
Karen Macek is The Landings Company’s Artist in Residence for March and April. Her show, Point of View, can been seen in The Landings Company’s Real Estate Center (One Landings Way North) Monday through Friday from 8:30 to 5 p.m., Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Point of View is a body of work expressing the artist’s interpretation of the ever-changing vistas across the Lowcountry marshes. Some of the work are layered glazes applied with a rag brush, some are a mixture of oil and cold wax applied with a palette knife, and others are sweeping brush strokes.
Inspired by her environment and her travels, Macek paintings utilize vivid color and expressive brush and knife techniques.
“Shifting skies, from marsh to desert, shadows and reflections of everyday life…contrasts and colors seem more intense as I put paint to canvas,” Macek said. “Everything about the process of painting excites me. It is a conversation between my brush, my canvas, and my paints that continues to explore the nuances of expression and challenge. Once I get involved in the work, I simply lose track of time. I love it when a piece almost paints itself.”
