Hester Ohbi, Wilderness, 42 x 28, acrylic on canvas.
On View: March 5 – 28, 2021

Hester Ohbi is a painter of abstract landscapes and inner transformation.  “I am intensely aware of the need for a balance between activity and stillness,” she says.  “We paint who we are without  thinking too much about it.  I try to convey an awareness of the abundance of the universe and a consciousness of belonging to it, and sometimes the struggle to belong to it.  There is an awareness of how life constantly changes, how thoughts and feelings come and go until we reclaim a calm oasis.  You see this in some of my landscapes, a passage through engagement and profusion toward light.”

In this show Ohbi moves beyond her recent meditative blue to larger works that are more openly descriptive and passionate.  It includes a series of tall, narrow paintings that seem to take the viewer by the hand and lead her to the sky or a watery reflection.
