Timeless Art by Terry Gardiner

 

Hello to all, this is my new Postcards to Ernest Hemingway collection 

 

I have studied and enjoy the life and works of Ernest Hemingway, his books run deep and reflect the Society in each location they take place.

 My works try to take your minds eye through a visual journey of a Ernest Hemingway classic.

These works represent abstract postcards sent to Ernest from various locations in his stories.

 After reading each book the viewer can better understand my meaning.

Gardiner Artist Statement

"My love of Hemingway comes alive in this series of 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 South Florida and the Caribbean there is a certain romance to the tropical landscape and white sand beaches; like nowhere else it draws me in. The flow of the sand islands 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 pages and cities of Ernest Hemingway's stories. If I can create that feeling in my viewers, then my work is complete and successful.
