Please welcome visual artist and poet Judith Skillman, who is based in Seattle. Synkroniciti is glad to feature three of her luminous oil paintings in our new “Flow” issue, alongside an article that gives insight into her creative process. The article is entitled “Distilled Moments: The Artwork of Judith Skillman” and the artworks are two seascapes: “Summer Sea After Joan Eardley,” and “Spray Red;” and a view of distant mountains, “After Cézanne’s Chaîne de l’Étoile.” All three capture our emotions by distilling landscape into lines, contours and textures illuminated by the play of light and color. The exquisite and delicate simplicity of Judith’s compositions creates a meditative mood that helps us slow down and process natural beauty.
