VISUAL ARTS ART WALKS
August 7 - September 26, 2009
Scottish-born Laguna Beach artists Paul Gardner brings his European training to abstract interpretations of the Earth's geological formations. "Elements" brings together themes that Gardner has been exploring over the past two decades: terrain, water, river rocks and ocean tide pools. They are represented by various compositions which communicate the beauty in the forms, colors and textures of the earth. Through these explorations the artist's experience and his view of nature are transported into painterly equivalents.
