Lois Gold is from New York. Lois was awarded by Marquis Top Artists, The Albert Nelson Marquis Artist Life Time Achievement Award, 2021. Artist statement: In the spring of 2009, I went to see the Pierre Bonnard exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. I kept returning to study these glorious late paintings many times. Each time I saw them, I found that after having been a representational landscape painter, I was becoming more drawn to the idea of painting-driven by color and texture alone. I followed my intuition and joyful images appeared as if rising from an inner well spring. I paint spontaneously with no preliminary sketches. Memories, dreams, music and dance all contribute to my inspiration. I have always been interested in ancient frescoes and textured surfaces. I strive to reproduce something akin to them in my paintings. There are translucent as well as impasto areas of paint which alternate to make the final effect of the surface recede and advance. I find inspiration in anything from nature, everyday images, fabrics and my immense collection of art books. My process is an intuitive mix of strokes with not only brushes, but fingers, sponges, stencils, stamps as well. I am not afraid to send water across a section of paint resulting in streaks and splashes, or what I like to call " happy accidents. I use many different mediums and pour the paint also. I stumble light colors over darker ones, use wonderful handmade papers which I tear and collage-anything which contributes to an interesting and varied surface. When you run your hands over the final image, they can be felt as well as seen. My color choices range from the warm drama of Turner to the pastel colors of Monet.
