Collection: Rita Spalding

My approach to painting is fairly traditional, but not purely representational. I combine very realistic elements with an abstracted, softened view of reality. While sometimes dramatic, I generally strive for a peaceful, calming beauty in my work. I’m drawn to the chiaroscuro look of the old masters, but I use objects and combinations of objects with a more modern sensibility.

I’m attracted to natural subject matter, and I enjoy combining it with stoneware or metal pieces. My love is creating quiet, poetic paintings with deep, rich colors, compelling subject matter, and concise, elegant compositions.
