Gardiner Artist Statement

"My love of Florida comes alive in my paintings"      

                    

 My first art instructor told me to go out and use my eyes to really see the earth. After practice my artistic perspective and observation techniques developed,  enabling me to paint places and objects more like I truly see and more importantly, feel them. Light patterns, texture of objects, sea depth, reflection, character and color definition were things I studied and practiced. 

At my first  gallery show in Venice,  Andy Warhol visited and told my gallery representative that the work was the best new art he'd ever seen.  That propelled me into the art world! In the Ft Myers area of southwest Florida there is a certain romance to the landscape and gulf beaches; like nowhere else it draws me in. The flow of the sand dunes and placement of palm trees and waterways has been the same for centuries.  It makes a lot of sense to me, as it must have to the original settlers and travelers. I will lay on the beach under an umbrella tree and try to create on canvas the actual feelings and senses of the coast I'm getting in those moments. When viewing my work I want you to be taken to the beaches and cities of Lee and Collier counties. If I can create that feeling in my viewers, then my work is complete and successful.
