On the Horizon
On the Horizon: Mixed Media by Sandra Dalton
“On the Horizon” is a mixed media collection. I was inspired to use different mediums, techniques, and ideas together to form this show. I don’t set out to produce art about one subject or another. I start with an idea and sometimes those ideas stay in my head and other times they develop into in-depth ideas and comprehensive pieces of art. Architecturally detailed buildings, become my focus using pen. Abstract landscape using alcohol ink. Texture, depth and stories are part of my acrylic paintings. When painting I find I tend towards colours. When I’m drawing (in particular, architecture) I prefer black and white. I like to let the brick and mortar speak for itself. The colours that flow using alcohol ink are truly amazing. I enjoy up-cycling materials in my art, using glass, birch bark, tiles, newspaper… I’ve extracted my ideas from my surroundings; Winnipeg, Manitoba, architecture, landscape, animals.
