Yvette Molina

I love that Molina can disregard the traditional square canvas for rounded shapes of aluminium of which its sheen adds to the serenity of her depictions of the wilderness. The circles she often uses to frame her paintings, I think, are more than relevant to her subject matter. Circles seem to express a close affinity to the natural world; the infinite cycles of life, death and decay, the interconnectedness of all living things.
