Terry Boutelle Acrylic and Mixed Media Painting
My painting process proceeds intuitively. The Forest represents for me the interior life. Through my work I explore the contradictions of mystery/adventure and danger/peacefulness found in a deep forest. I can emphasize a forest’s deep space using layered matte medium to draw one inward beyond the surface of the canvas while using mixed media and collage to bring the materials closer to and off of the visual surface. Terry is a Boston artist and teacher, with an MFA from the Massachusetts College of Art and Design program at the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown. Her work can be seen at AMP Gallery, Provincetown or at her studio by appointment. Exhibits include: “Counting Breaths” at the Koussevitzky Art Gallery at Berkshire Community College, “Remembrance” at Andover Newton Theological School, “A Forest in Mind” at the Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University, and “Treescapes” at VCC Gallery at Bentley College.
