Naturally occurring patterns on weathered surfaces reveal themselves to LuAnn Ostergaard; she may discover a hint of what looks like a distant mountain or a wisp of cloud within an image and use this as a starting point in her composition.
In her work, Ostergaard strives for an artistic style characterized by details and mental associations that evoke subjective impressions, rather than the recreation of objective reality. She aims to capture a momentary, sensory effect—the impression an object makes on the eye in a fleeting instant. Her recent body of work features a series of abstract landscapes created from digital images.
Ostergaard is a full-time artist and works from a home studio in Kennewick, Washington.
