Sandra Caplan: Paintings Part Two

SANDRA CAPLAN Adriatic, 40'X32_, O_L, sandra caplan 2014

My past and recent work explores the possibilities of the still life, that is, the same and similar subjects, flowers, fruit and vegetables, photos, objects, placed on vividly colored and patterned fabrics. The still life is often set against an open sea view or landscape, near the shade of a palm or placed on a table top within the studio. An accent of a drape or architectural reference is incorporated at times, referring back to visual details found in favorite paintings or to the memory of a place. There is this reference to a landscape or city view depending on where the work originated.
These compositions offer a complex formality that is the culmination of acute observation, heightened by a painterly approach and highly developed color sense.
