Mandy is passionate about midcentury architecture and design, and in fact she lives in a midcentury home. In her architectural series, she likes to focus on a detail of this iconic style that incorporates dramatic lighting and composition, contrasting the hard-edged shapes of the buildings with the organic forms of rugged hillsides or the flowing movement of vegetation. Oil paint is glazed in layers to achieve a luminous effect. Loose brushwork and subtle reflections enliven the precise linear geometry.
Rancho Mirage, California
Mandy Main is an art historian and landscape painter based in the Southern California desert. She has long been passionate about 19th Century American landscape paintings, which has been influential in her artistic practice. Mandy works in series, generally three paintings at a time. Her process begins with a vision of a place she has been, but she takes creative liberties with the aesthetic details. The artist is captivated by light and shadow, and strives to instill her work with moody drama through the representation of these elements. Using layers of paint and glazes, Mandy achieves mesmerizing atmospheric depth, encouraging the viewer to gaze and be still.
