"C o u n t r y  W a l k s"

by Isabel Bilbao, IB Isbel Bilbao - Galeria de Arte Isabel Bilbao 

A fragile array of layers of transparent colours flows over a group of rather small size cotton canvases. Mysterious images full of melancholic sentiment capture our attention. One by one, light oil colour coats create a singular environment where we are invited to traverse in an initiation visual tour. The delicacy of Natasha Marson's work suits well with her tender soul and slim body unless a powerful strength comes out from this finesse that is also reflected on her paintings. "Curfew" "Hiding Sun", "Salt Lake" Strong sensations that move us when visiting, by way of eyes, soul and memories, the appealing landscape series that she has under titled as "Country Walks".

Light is an essential element that Marson manages with care and dedication. "Moods", "Sunset", "Red Sky". Her lighting studies, diverse within every painting, intend emotive results that guide us not only through her artworks but also across our own inside. Subtle nuances gradually appear or vanish, rendering states of mind and suggesting stillness or tempest, quietness or thunder, intimacy and togetherness. A scarce amount of paint, well diluted in oil medium, runs time after time across the canvases, conforming incredible supple clouds and mist that fluently ascend the skies creating incredibly rich atmospheres. Depth is equally well accomplished when representing superposed mountains or geographic elements in landscape scenery to be interpreted by viewers.  

"Country Walks" landscapes seem to lodge somehow their creator's character. "Nostalgia", "Eve". Natasha Marson is a hostess who, inhabiting her singular spaces, welcomes and guides us through her personal world and makes us cross her intentionally faded lines to ask us questions that she once asked herself.
