Drawn to the inherent beauty and spirit of the natural world, Bridgette’s artwork is a personal dialogue that reaches into the stillness of that spirit. Through both imagery and medium, she creates organic pieces that speak to the cycles of life, growth and decay, memory and the passage of time. Bridgette’s mixed media paintings incorporate moments captured by her photographs with the richness of paint, creating a bridge between two worlds – the real and the reconstructed. She lays down layers of encaustic, oil or acrylic paint and pieces of photo transfers, papers or fibers to create depth in both form and meaning. Her multilayered surfaces speak to both the visual and tactile senses.
“My artwork aims to reveal the beautiful melancholy and the fragile imperfection of the life around and within." ~ Bridgette Guerzon Mills, Towson MD
