Mariko Hibbett

My paintings reflect my experience of the natural world, abstracted to explore the interplay of color and light. They are less concerned with the subject, than the atmosphere that is created - the warm glow of a late afternoon in summer, the crisp air of a winter morning, the rhythm of water, wind and trees.

Alongside my work as an artist, I have also been a practicing architect for many years. During that time, I have spent hours looking at plans, and that perspective has crept into my art. Recent paintings have taken an aerial view of subjects that range from bodies of water, gardens or land forms.

This perspective allows me to detach further from the subject, and see the patterns, colors and forms that emerge. Looking down, I go where those colors or patterns lead me, to follow the feeling or mood of the painting.
