Poogy Bjerklie’s installation at The Phatory acts as a tableau of her emotions made visible. As she has described her turns of thought about her creative process: “The paint and the image and the memory mingle fluidly until, eventually a feeling surfaces that liberate an emotion that may produce a painting.” Her work recalls the romantic ideals pursued by artists of the Hudson River School, whose idealized depictions of nature offer momentary respites from mankind’s reckless dance with modernity. Her multi-layered wall and framed paintings entice viewers to enter serene renditions of the Maine landscape that she is able to recall from childhood memories to quieting and ethereal affect.
