Georg Gudni

FOR SOME TIME NOW I HAVE BEEN PAINTING LANDSCAPES, EVENTUALLY LIMITING MYSELF TO MOUNTAINS. EACH PAINTING FOCUSES ON A SINGLE MOUNTAIN, THE ONE WHOSE NAME IT BEARS, BUT I THINK IN THE FINAL IMAGE A PARTICULAR VIEW OF THAT MOUNTAN WILL BECOME MIXED WITH SEVERAL OTHERS OR WITH IMPRESSIONS FROM OTHER MOUNTAINS, AND WITH MY FEELINGS AND THINKING ABOUT A MOUNTAIN. I DON’TMAKE VERY COMPLICATED PAINTINGS, I LIKE SIMPLICITY OF FORM AND COLOR, BUT I FIND IT TAKES A LONG TIME FOR THE PANTING TO GROW TOWARDS THAT SIMPLICITY AND FOR ME TO BUILD IT UP WITH MANY LAYERS OF PAINT. THE IMAGE REACHES MATURITY AS MY OWN THOUGHTS AND FEELINGS GROW; I DON’T WANT MY PAINTINGS TO GET AHEAD OF ME. GEORG GUŠNI.
