Linda  Hollett-Bazouzi
Alla prima, au premier coup, all at once, first strike. Whatever you call it, my best work has always been about this—whether outside or in the studio, once I’ve completed my thought process, I work until the painting is done. Besides trying to capture the moment, the wind, the ripple, the sound and light, there is the physical factor that because of how I paint it is very difficult to go back and finish later. Touch up, yes; stop for a few days and come back, no. I use a painting knife almost exclusively, and that lays the paint onto the canvas very differently than a brush. Once the paint has begun to harden, I can’t push and pull the paint around, scratch and scrub, build and obliterate.I am drawn to areas that we see but don’t see. This leads to work being done in a series, expressing change over time, real or imagined, within myself or in the location.
