Artist Statement: These paintings are not “marine scapes” so much as portraits of crashing waves, almost like characters in a story,  based on plein-air studies.  I found Norse mythology a rich resource for the names of these different characters


In Norse mythology the sea gods Aegir and Rán preceded all others.  They had 9 daughters who all represented different kinds of waves.  They were:


Bára (or Drönn) – foam flecked wave

Blódughadda – (the one with bloody hair – the color of red sea foam after a battle)

Bylgia - (billow or big wave)

Dúfa – the pitching wave

Himinglaeva – the clear wave that reflects the sky or light

Hefring – The surging wave

Hrönn -  the grasping wave

Kólga – the chilling wave

Unn - wave

IRMA CERESE

New Paintings ~ Solo Exhibit

Opening Reception, Friday, Aug 7  5-8pm

(New location)     409 Main St. •  Rockland

Irma has always been fascinated with color and her primary interest in painting is focused on color relationships.  Her work has the ability to be seen simultaneously as landscape and abstract paint surface.  This perception of her work creates a duality which holds our attention while we digest different realities of her painting.  She strives to produce a compelling visual experience in its own right, rather than convey information or illustrate an idea.


She received her formal training at the Academy of Art and the School of the Art Institute, both in Chicago, IL. Irma maintained a studio in New York City until 1985 and her paintings are in numerous private, corporate and institutional collections in the United States and Europe.  Currently her principal affiliation is with Landing Gallery in Rockland, Maine.
