Vicki Kocher Paret, "Mill Creek Canyon #4", Gouache on Panel, 14 x 11 inches, 2020

"I play with paint, inspired by the observation of nature and the beauty I encounter. My paintings are built with many layers of marks, working with gouache for its rich, matte color. It is meditative navigating the tangle of shapes to render a detailed sense of space and place. 

This group of paintings speaks to relativity - the contrast of brilliant vs drab, buoyant vs grounded, light vs shadow - visual metaphors for forces/relationships that exist in the world. Intensity, in all things, is so much greater because of the existence of its opposite." -Vicki Kocher Paret
