inspired by wetlands : allison stewart

Allison Stewart is a New Orleans-based artist that derives much of her inspiration from the wetlands of Louisiana. It is with
particular poignancy that I feature her work in light of the Gulf oil disaster. I could not even imagine how she must feel
about what's been going on, the affect this will have on her work. I am so in love with her paintings. I love the abstraction
and the seeing evidence of her process and intention. She also uses music as a metaphor for her painting process,
the layering of sounds being similar to painting – having depth and fluidity. Beautiful.
