Artist’s Statement



 To:            Praxis Gallery 
From:    Arleen McCallum

Date:     June 2006


Subject:                         Equinox



Equinox refers to those two times in the solar year when there is a perfect balance of light and dark; it is those times and that concept that have helped develop this work. The concept of balance is crucial to all art, and there are several things that must be kept in balance in order to achieve the tension and harmony that will engage and stimulate a viewer. The artist endeavours to balance colour, values, details, motifs, accents, positive and negative shapes, and textures. Compositions   will  then resemble the balances we encounter in the natural world, and the work should as a result, feel “right”.
