Out of the Shadows

New Paintings by Eileen Dorsey

Eileen DorseyARTIST STATEMENT by Eileen Dorsey
I have always had a passion for hiking and exploring ever since I was young and would play in the woods near my home.  I remember the sense of wonder I felt when I walked amongst the trees.  The light that came through their large branches sprinkled the forest floor like glitter and danced through my imagination.  I have always been fascinated by this environment.

When I graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Kent State University,  I was a figurative painter.  I used different paint techniques to capture my subjects.  As I got older, I started painting landscapes.  I began painting very pictorial scenes at first, and gradually made my way to focusing on my love for the forest.  This progression of style and subject matter was a natural fit.  I was finally able to combine my two passions for painting and exploring. 

The colors I use in these paintings are intended to highlight the magical qualities of the scenes I am focusing on.  I begin by exaggerating the colors that naturally exist and by this, pushing the boundaries of realism.
