San Anselmo Artists Open Studios
Artist June Yokell
paintings are influenced by specific aspects of nature, particularly by trees
and water; by the movement of, by light on, by shadows and reflections, by the
power of, by fluidity, or by calming abilities.
Many of the recent paintings are the result of walks along the Corte
While the subject of my paintings is derived from water,
with all its variations; reflections, shadows, submerged feelings, memory,
etc., my paintings are primarily about paint and how paint is used. I’m an oil painter and there is something
about the inherent nature of oil paints I find beautiful. The scale of my work
runs from large, 45” x 92”, to fairly small, 12” x 30”. I particularly like working on a scale that
is larger than my height, so I feel that the painting is just a bit out of my
control while simultaneously engulfing me.
My work has been a real coalition of representation and abstraction, but
lately it’s been moving further and further towards abstraction while
maintaining its connection with the subject of water.
