“My work is a spontaneous adventure with textures and color,” says the artist Methec, speaking of her images. “The goal is movement, depth and raw energy.” These vibrant oil on canvas paintings combine those aspects into a body of work with a varied palette, distinctive style and dynamic sense of composition. Drips and swirls of colors that have a psychedelic intensity move across the surfaces of her paintings, creating powerful visual rhythms. And while her work is abstract, Methec’s ability to create the effects of light, air and water give her works an immediate physicality. “I’ve never accepted ordinary surroundings as the only view to perceive,” she says, and the world her paintings depict is far from ordinary.

A self-taught artist, Methec says her tools of choice include rags, pieces of paper and “Earth’s own gravity.” Such unconventional tools result in paintings that have the rough-hewn edges of outsider art, but also possess a sharply defined clarity and focus. Overall, they have what the artist herself calls “a satisfying balance of beauty, emotion, energy and depth.”
