There is something inherently romantic about Romona Youngquist’s paintings. Her pastoral scenes, often picturing a lonely farmhouse in the midst of a breathtaking landscape, are reminders of the Arcadian delights celebrated by Virgil in Ancient Rome. They also show, in a very subtle way, our place within creation, and are a humbling reminder that humanity can live in harmony with nature.
Each of Romona Younquist’s paintings is a symphony, an ode to nature and its beauty. Through strong design, rigorous composition, and the effective use of contrast, Youngquist creates or re-creates peaceful and uplifting scenes. Her paintings invite the viewer into a place they want to stay or return over and over. Each offers universal serenity and a feeling of homecoming.
Youngquist’s paintings nurture the soul. Nature, as a comforting source of physical and spiritual sustenance, is depicted with modulated tonalities and balanced proportions. Youngquist uses a limited palette and mixes every hue with extreme care while allowing splashes of vibrant colors to instill energy and guide the eye. Very few living painters have been able to achieve such aesthetic balance. This is why Romona Youngquist is so admired, so talked about, and so collected, both nationally and internationally.
Romona’s show will be on display until March 23rd, 2020.
