Rita Kirsch DungeyMy paintings are layered snapshots and documents of the beauty, variety, and subtle shifting of moment-to-moment thoughts and feelings related to natural seascapes and landscapes I have encountered. I am interested in color, process, materials, and energetic flow.

My intention is to explore and create works that generate positive life force and present a conduit for infusion of health, joy, courage, spontaneity, or a time to simply be in the present moment. I start a painting with complete openness and allow the interplay of my intentions and the natural properties of the materials to unfold moment-to-moment. The processes of construction, destruction, veiling, unveiling, building texture, scraping, sanding, and incising, all represent a journey through layers of time, forms, colors, and spaces. By stepping in to the flux and surrendering to the natural currents of the creative process and materials, the stage is set for seemingly unrelated components to cross paths, interact and organize. Often the end result is larger and more vital than anything that could be predicted before starting the journey.

My paintings are a continuation of my journey to discover the emergence of vitally organic and provocative images that result from going with the flow.
