From the artist’s statement:
“In December of 2006, my father was diagnosed with brain cancer. This series of paintings began while we fought this enemy. After the craniotomy, while he healed, I painted. You can see my techniques slowly grow and mature throughout the series. He fought for 3 years. Except for the singular painting of my parents resting place in North Carolina, all of the landscapes I painted are located here in beautiful Wisconsin. The direction I was facing, the name of the road and gps locations are in the title for those interested in a real journey through the true Wisconsin Farmscapes.”
Kari Radl’s work show, Wisconsin Farmscapes, A Retrospective, will be on display through February 2011 at The Firefly Coffee House Gallery in Oregon, Wisconsin.
