Merl Ross’s recent painting series is inspired by a boat journey to Bornholm, a Danish Island in the Baltic. Arriving there, she had such an affinity for this place, it was as though she had arrived inside one of her own paintings. She was struck by the pure light, medieval round churches, open fields, ancient castles and the deep blue of the sea. This work is a combination of the rich topography merging with her imagination.

Merl’s paintings are explorations into fields of color, lyrical forms and the ambiguity of spatial relationships. The images contain numerous layers, often buried within the work, only hinting at its form’s full existence.
