More than just a compositional construct, doors, windows, and passageways provide the opportunity to imbue a painting with a sense of mystery. Whether our view is looking out, looking in, or down a corridor, we can’t help but wonder what awaits on the other side. Here, seven artists present us with seven unique takes on these familiar yet evocative subjects.
“Created during Plein Air Easton 2018, ‘Sunbaked’ is based on a series of structures where the pattern of light and shadow created strong geometric shapes,” says Ken Karlic. “It is in the mysteries of the windows, doors, and passageways that I found the most interest. By simply suggesting them, I created a feeling rather than a specific place.”
“When we were in Venice, it rained the entire time,” says Jennifer Taylor. “This open door was so inviting, I just wanted to slip in there and sit in the courtyard for a reprieve.”
