Kirsten McIntosh Landscape
This outstanding landscape, Towards Te Aroha by gallery artist Kirsten McIntosh demonstrates her ability to integrate detailed foreground with layers of intricate landscape. The central contours quickly become manifest due to the yellow accent that is the first colour to hit the retina. The composition reveals a thin seascape topped in contrast with azure blue sky.
In this way the painting works from bottom to top presenting a sense of proximity, distance and expanse.
