Paintings On Canvas
My abstract paintings evoke the emotional reactions that aspects of nature stir within me. I play with the relationships of forms, colors and gestural marks. I often begin mixing up a few chosen colors. Sometimes I’m affected by the rhythms and mood of music. One stroke of paint leads to another, and soon there is a dialogue between the canvas and me.
“I look for essential forms and disregard extraneous details.”

When I see a landscape with flowing water or reflections in a tranquil pond, my creative energy is stimulated.
I visualize where I’m going and what I’m going to paint. I enjoy painting “en plein air.”
“Demsky experiments with the play of colors against each other, allowing flecks of contrasting and complementary hues to set up vibrating fields of visual energy.”

Inspired by my visit to a launch at the Kennedy Space Center, I paint my own interpretation of the planets and celestial phenomena.
“The beauty of our planet brings serenity in turbulent times.” ~ Hilda Green Demsky, Artist ~
Concerned about pollution in our rivers and oceans, I created paintings about garbage in our waterways. I painted the detritus in Long Island Sound and had an invitational exhibition in Mykonos, Greece to show the pollution of the water is hurting the marine environment globally.
