Artist Kent Paulette says, “I painted this in my home studio which overlooks the mountains. I went down to the creek early in the morning before I started this painting, waded through, and stuck my face in the cold water. I collected a bucket of creek water and came back to my studio with mud between my toes and feeling very connected to nature. Then I mixed that creek water in with paint and I stained the canvas with my Creek Washes.”

“Looking back I’m realizing that my phases of painting for the last 20 years have gone Air, then Earth, then Fire, then Water, then Air again as the cycle begins again. After a year of Wild Fire, I decided to consciously move towards Water and Air with this new mountain painting.”

“Fire is a wild, passionate, and violent style of painting. Post-punk music brings my Fire style of painting out of me.”

“Water is flowing and zen Creek Washes. I listen to the music of Dead Can Dance when I paint in that style.”

“Air is about thoughts, ideas, and creativity which expresses itself in my whimsical geometric shapes. I listen to Coldcut’s DJ mixes of random strange music of all types which gets me dancing when I paint in that style.”

“Earth is physical and I must be vulnerable to paint in that style. I smear the wet paint with my fingertips over the rough texture below. Fela’s Afrobeat music brings it out me.” — Kent Paulette
