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 traveler. 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 traveler was satisfied.
“Across the Bay”, mixed media artwork by Magdalena Morey
Every painting from Magdalena Morey is built up from multiple layers of acrylics, watercolors, 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 color that this mixed media approach allows her. She often uses watercolors to tint the metallic reflections, which leads to the colors changing continually with the viewer’s perspective and the lighting conditions.
