Artist Bio:
Rebecca Kanfer is a professional artist working on landscape based oil and watercolor paintings for over 15 years. Born in Burlington, Vermont she now lives in New York City and is a practicing Landscape Architect. Rebecca currently has paintings on display at The Danville Museum of Fine Arts and History in Danville, VA, and recently participated in a group show at the Atlantic Gallery in Chelsea, NY.
At the open studios she will be showing oil paintings from her "Into the Forest" series, and will have original watercolor paintings available for purchase.

Artist Statement:
Her works seek to evoke a sense of quiet and serenity, and capture intimate experiences within the landscape, through use of color, day-light-time, and sense of movement or stillness.

The forest paintings include landscape scenes covering a spectrum from urban forests of New York City to natural forest preserves. In each there are lyrical moments which speak to life and human connection to the natural world. The inclusion of trees throughout signifies a duration of time, and incredibly dynamic connections within the landscape scenes. They indicate a fundamental connection between even the most disparate landscapes.
