Description

Water is a source of inspiration for March’s abstract painting practice, which utilizes color, light, and motion to create spaces for viewers to participate in the artwork. This interaction between the artwork and the viewer, March believes, “finishes” the painting through a dialogue between the artist’s intentions and the viewer’s sensations and
perspective using perception and emotions, the environment that surrounds the artwork, and other forces intrinsic to the process of sensual exchange between artist and viewer. March’s work is interested precisely in the way energy flows from artist to painting, from painting to viewer. The painting itself, for March, becomes a transmitter of aesthetic opportunity, altered and completed by the addition of the viewer’s own chosen principles, perspective, and appreciations.
