Oil Landscapes Transformed into Mosaics of Color by Erin Hanson.
Erin Hanson transforms landscapes into abstract mosaics of color using an impasto paint application, where thick globs of paint create almost sculptural forms on the canvas. She tries to use a few brush strokes as possible, without layering, a process that’s been called “open impressionism.”
“Hanging precariously and horizontally from red sandstone, fifty feet above the ground, may not seem like it would inspire the creation of beautiful oil paintings, but that is exactly what happened with Erin Hanson. After a lifetime of experimenting in different styles and mediums, it wasn’t until Hanson moved to the outskirts of Las Vegas to climb at Red Rock Canyon that her painting style was consolidated by a single inspiration and force of nature.”
