Visions of Paradise was inspired by the recent Gota storm called Dana, in a part of Spain I know well. The reflections of trees and cars in the flood water, which was the colour of raw umber , the title Visions of Paradise as this is a place many people leave their country of origin to settle in . I developed this work in the studio in an abstract way, focusing on the essence of place, through the colours used and emotions felt.

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.”
