Ilse T. Hable

Art is the end result of a creative process through which the artist communicates his or her experiences and emotions to the viewer.

Good art is one which actually achieves that the viewer relates to these feelings when exposed to the work of art. Art, and the appreciation of art, are therefore very personal matters; not every painting can resonate in every person.

Art is, as the saying goes, in the eyes of the beholder. My art is about my fellow human beings and about our natural world, with its wonderful and ever changing combinations of shapes and colors. Whatever I paint, I am interested in capturing the essence and the specific mood of the scene in front of me. However insignificant some sights may seem, beauty can be found almost anywhere, and I enjoy discovering it and making it visible to others through my art.

I prefer to paint from life, and on location whenever possible, and finish most of my smaller pieces in one session. By paying close attention to light and shadow and the way they influence color, I am able to describe form, temperature and surfaces spontaneously and without the need for too much detail. My approach is realistic, with emphasis on good drawing, but not overly defined, leaving the pleasure of discovery and interpretation to the viewer.
