Laura Rathe Fine Art Dallas announces Skywriting, a solo exhibition featuring Toronto-based painter, Janna Watson. LRFA will be hosting the opening reception on Saturday, April 1 from 4:30-7:30pm.


Painted in the countryside of northern Ontario, Skywriting showcases Watson's newest body of works, each inspired by seductive sunsets and cloudscapes. The artist’s purposeful clusters and gestural strokes take viewers on a spiritual journey traversing through dimensions that capture soft, luxuriant neutral shades, entangled with pops of deep and electric hues. For Watson, painting abstraction is about embodying the essence of our physical world and visually articulating the invisible fields through her polychromatic compositions.


"The sky is my muse. It is no-place and all-places, and as a subject matter, it is my connective portal to nature. Unlike landscape, which references the topography of a specific place, the sky is a numinous entity that draws us toward a preeminent power.”


Skywriting is on display through May 6, 2023.
