A World Within

Connie Hoogerland's avatar Connie Hoogerland

Wherever there is water, exists an opportunity to immerse myself in its unequalled qualities on many levels. It is an intimate space to observe from all perspectives just as my paintings represent these same ever changing complexities. I believe the constant in life is change, so that reflections are constantly altering within their movement field and mine. Water represents a life sustaining force both mentally and physically. It controls and is controlled. It reveals many secrets and protects many more. I have great respect for its serenity and its strength, for plant and animal life which depend on it, live near it or in it. Intuitively I see beauty and/or raw detail in focusing on a small area or a large expanse of eco/psychological space. To my free spirit it reveals thoughts of other worlds within, therefore initiating inquiry and vision, bridging the abstract, interpretive and real. This painting is one world within, adjacent to, overlapping, and approaching those other worlds.
