2010-Lilian Garcia-Roig

More Than a Brush With Nature

Recent Landscapes by Lilian Garcia-Roig

November 15, 2010 - December 1, 2010

More than a Brush with Nature, features works painted on site in Washington State by award winning artist and professor Lilian Garcia-Roig. These canvases celebrate the huge old maples and hemlocks draped with moss indigenous to the area northeast of Seattle. They also illustrate the preference for maximalist landscapes. Diametrically opposed to the less is more philosophy, Garcia-Roig explains: “All in all, I want the viewer to come away believing that more information, more square footage, more complexity, more time, more abstraction, more representation, more paint, et cetera, even in a single image, can add up to a more powerful and rewarding visual experience.  I believe that one can do more with more and I hope to show how relevant and exciting on-site landscape can be in the world of contemporary painting.” 


The artist’s works are also being exhibited at MOCA Jacksonville. Hyperbolic Nature: Recent Landscapes features large -scale landscapes from the northeast in the museum’s atrium while paintings of Florida can be found in the UNF Gallery on the second floor.
