Marty Carey – Impermanence: 100 Views of Cooper Lake. Gallery open Tuesday-Saturday, 1-6 pm.
“Impermanence is a basic fact of existence. I use color and simplified forms to create a landscape space. I have always loved nature, to be in it and to draw and paint it. I started doing paintings of Cooper Lake in Lake Hill, NY, in the Catskills in 1969. The first paintings focused on solid forms, usually trees. In the last few years years I began painting the essence of nature-change. An ever changing ever moving process. I saw that nothing was static or stable. The lake was impermanent, fleeting, transient. Cooper Lake is small but boundless.”
