       Blue Mountain Gallery presents Live Streaming, an exhibition of recent works by Anne Diggory that were inspired by the Adirondacks of upstate New York. In the painted and hybrid works she continues her interest in a merger of the fleeting moment with the supposedly more permanent natural forms of mountains and shore. In that interplay, the land forms take on the liveliness of the clouds and waters. Shifting interpretations of the same locations inform multiple works on the same day, on return visits, or in re-imaginings back in the studio.

One series includes three paintings from a short stay at Crane Point at Blue Mountain Lake and three later works based on Diggory’s experiences there.  The weather, reflections and light kept shifting that day and inspired her to make dramatically different artistic choices to reflect a changing focus and create a new effect. In the sixth version, Diggory inserts herself, merging with the water as she observes the scene. (below: Crane Point 1-6) 4-6 are 24x24"

                

       

 

In the large mixed-media hybrid works, the shifts between painting, photography and digital manipulation continue to be “startling and disorienting, as well as beautiful,” with “mysterious, absorbing blends” (Jay Rogoff, Adirondack Life, March 2015). In “White Lightning,” based on Roaring Brook Falls near Keene Valley, a thin jagged line of water cleaves the massive rock face that has been carved by powerful waterflow over the centuries, leaving a pile of debris at the bottom. The same location becomes a welcoming location for a family picnic in “Summer Retreat.”
