Owner/Artist Ginnie Cappaert creates her minimallist abstract landscape paintings in the log studio on the Cappaert Contemporary Gallery property. Ginnie Cappaert is a full time visual artist/gallery owner with a summer studio in Egg Harbor, Wisconsin and a winter studio in the Upper Peninsula of Michgan. Her surroundings of nature and her travels inspire and influence her oil/mixed media paintings on paper or wood panel.
Ginnie has taken many workshops by various artists, but it is her intense studying of art history and just 'experimenting' that have broadened her personal techniques to art making. She works in oil and mixed media layering, adding and removing, many layers to each piece. It is this in-depth process that let's subtle markings and layers emerge into the finished paintig which is an abstracted minimalist version of a landscape.
Peace. Serenity. Joy. Is what she would like to accomplish in her painting.
