As I walked beside the turbulent sea, the afternoon sunlight playing on the waves, a distant peninsular appeared briefly from the depths of the horizon’s haze. “That’s where I need to be”, said the traveller. I looked again and imagined myself there, looking back towards where I stood. “That’s where I need to be”, said my imagination. And the traveller was satisfied.
“Across the Bay”, mixed media artwork by Magdalena Morey
Every painting from Magdalena Morey is built up from multiple layers of acrylics, watercolours, and pastels. In many of her landscapes, she also includes gold leaf as a way to express the heat and luminous intensity of the sun. Magdalena adores the potential interplays of texture, reflectivity, and colour that this mixed media approach allows her. She often uses watercolours to tint the metallic reflections, which leads to the colours changing continually with the viewer’s perspective and the lighting conditions.
