Maggie LaPorte Banks. Abstract expressionist art. Acrylic, Collage and mixed medium on canvas. H. 50 cm x W. 50 cm x D. 2 cm . Unframed. This painting Cornish landscape, is about the remembered colours of the Penwith coast off of Cornwall. The black and red oxide rocks, the sand, and the purple wild flowers that cling to the cliffs edges. Insitu images are purely an indication of how a piece may look. Maggie LaPorte Banks artist comments: “My Art is routed in landscape, influenced by childhood memories of Donegal, by Lough Swilly, surrounded by dark mountains. I spent ten years living near to the Brecons Beacons and painting using a tent as a studio in all seasons. For over thirteen years I was an artist in residence in a cottage on the end of Cape Cornwall overlooking the Brisons at different times of the year. Therefore, I have a vast amount of passion for the skies, sea and mountains which I love to involve within my paintings. My recent works have been developed from these roots and are becoming much more abstract, focusing on ‘the essence of place’ through the colours I use and emotions I have created. I work mainly in oils, acrylic and mixed media, sometimes adding unique materials such as sand, carborundum, iron fillings and many other products I feel the work dictates.
