Featuring artist Brooke Lanier, this series captures the serene beauty of water. The appearance of water changes according to your vantage point. When you are looking down at it, you see the bottom, but further out, the more the water reflects its surroundings. The water quality itself, the color of the water, the turbulence, and everything all at the same time, it all comes together into a pattern. Wherever you go in the world, water behaves in a reliable manner in terms of its patterns of movement and reflection. Her paintings share that it is restorative to go to a peaceful place and contemplate the beautiful subtlety of colors, patterns of light in water, plants and sky. As an artist, Lanier strives to create work that will encourage contemplation and greater awareness of mundane beauty.
