Maureen Spinale, “Bending in the Wind”
When I walked in this piece just struck me from a distance. I was told once that “great art can be seen from the cheap seats” and this piece by Maureen doesn’t disappoint. I love the limited palette, the variety of texture, the strong vertical shapes and the feeling of motion here. The scale helps you feel immersed in a forest, giving the sense of being in that place. There is something special about paintings that can take you somewhere else entirely. Congratulations Maureen.
