kdb Dominguez -Artist

My love affair with Art and Nature is a colorful collision mixed with graphic elements. Being in nature, walking and observing our unique and varied landscape, then working in the studio and creating art is a divine joy to me. The shapes, patterns, colors and forms of the natural world have been making their way into my artwork since I was a child. Over the years I have explored many different mediums in my artistic endeavors. My favorite mediums are Encaustic and Acrylic. In the Autumn of 2014 I began a 1 year Climate Change Project “WilderlandMaine”. I wrapped this 4 year project on September 20th, 2018. I am now working on the post work. Wrangling images, creating data bases, working on 2 books and a series of a dozen "Eye Spy" Illustrations. This series is a call to all of us to make changes in how we interact with the landscape, rewilding and learning to live in harmony with our precious planet!

This project has intensified my view of the absolute perfection of nature, every moment of everyday, week by week and season by season. I have fallen deeply in love with all that the Wilderland has to offer, this love is reflected in my Paintings and Photographs in ways I had never imagined.

 

The Wilderland Climate Change Project,

A One year Artist Immersion Experience

September 2014- September 2015

WilderlandMaine Project

September 2105 - September 2018

This adventure was inspired by our rapidly changing climate and the my opportunity to photograph and document how the shores of the Kennebec River and the beaches look today. The work was methodical, going out most everyday, regardless of the weather photographing what was happening, then back into my studio, sorting, posting and making sense of each days work. I also create paintings from my images that are inspired by this wildly beautiful spot. I am now in the second year of this One Year Project. I moved back to Bath and do my work from my studio on Middle St. I go out photographing most days and am finding that like life everything is in a constant state of change. But I have noticed that this year seems the tides are even higher and lower than last year. I have noticed that this magical spot is affected by all of the things going on upriver, lawns, chemicals, neighborhoods and city run off, boats and warming water too. Do your best, please. Nature is depending on you.
