Juliana McDonald’s daily walks in local woods and fields connect her to nature’s complexities and rhythms and to the challenges green spaces face to escape urban development. Field paintings celebrate the rich variety of wildflowers and grasses slowly reclaiming old farmlands. Similarly, the delicate transition zones between land and water team with life and mystery. Tightly-cropped close-ups and high horizon lines draw the viewer into these intimate places. Layers of paint are applied with a palette knife, echoing the layering of events over time.
