Sidney Sinclair's hazy landscapes that evoke feelings




Morning Mist
Sidney Sinclair
20 x 24”
Oil


Feathery wisps of painterly attributes lick the canvas, driven by nameless afflictions as Sidney Sinclair delivers an artistic pseudo-epitaph of sorts with a muted palette of color that lays claim to a new beginning – an aesthetically purposeful jump off from a road well-traveled, previously versed in despair, sickness and recovery and onto an new awaking; full of life. She gives us prize paintings via new outlooks —a hazy dreamland of internal psychology.

In Morning Mist, Sinclair presents a morning’s glow with a setting moon falling behind the purplish horizon. We are greeted by a mysterious and meandering stream that leads us into the composition like Charon in the Hades River, guiding us though the thicket as if we are floating spiritual beings entranced by the world around us.

Thin layers of paint are caressed, whipped, and stoked; misty evocations of some region untouched by man; an obscure rendition that transcends worldly locations.

This dreamy, hazy, airy and ephemeral landscape evokes unknown metaphysical and psychosomatic endurances - pains that have numbed from personal atrocities. However, gradually the artist takes our hand and we feel a warmth that is that coupled with hope, peace, serenity and tranquility.
