Description

From the Water collection. 40" x 40" x 1.5”. Acrylic, charcoal, and pumice on hand-stretched gallery-wrapped canvas by Wendy Pabich. 

Be Like Water. Water, for its beauty, intrinsic properties, and mystical powers, remains for me a source of endless inspiration, stories, and life lessons. The paintings in this series are both an exploration of science through art, and expressions of reverence for our life-giving waters. By layering acrylic paint, pumice, plaster, and various mediums, I seek to emulate earth patterns, where form and function are intertwined. My mixtures on canvas create organic images that speak of weathering, dripping water, tangled reeds--providing a continuous reminder of the complexity and wonder of the natural world.

How to Love: "If you pour a handful of salt into a cup of water, the water becomes undrinkable. But if you pour the salt into a river, people can continue to draw the water to cook, wash, and drink. The river is immense, and it has the capacity to receive, embrace, and transform. When our hearts are small, our understanding and compassion are limited, and we suffer. We can’t accept or tolerate others and their shortcomings, and we demand that they change. But when our hearts expand, these same things don’t make us suffer anymore. We have a lot of understanding and compassion and can embrace others. We accept others as they are, and then they have a chance to transform."
