Forest Feast

Inspired by nature, a forest, a slow army of beings in it for the long-run. A forest is interconnected, linked by mycelium and electromagnetic frequencies. This collection of original artworks is a reflection of the nuances of the forest, of color revealed by light.

This collection of original fine artworks are a celebration of life, and speak to broader depth of  finding one’s way on the journey of the human experience.

The ideas presented in the Forest Feast Collection discuss the exploration of nature, revelation of the “personalities” or “spirit of the land” in the form of trees, animals, rocks, water and mountains and ultimately, connection, joining in, care for, and celebrating with the Creator of all of these things. Many of the paintings feature abstract, colorful, trees, forests, lakes, rivers and mountains, which revel in pattern, and feature symbols and “eye-like” markings on their faces.

“As a transplant from California and former surfer, I struggled to find my place in the community and my sport in nature. I didn’t really know how to approach this new landscape which was so vastly different than my former coastal domain. I was determined to explore Bend through my paintbrush and I used art as a way to cope with the changes of living in a new place. My pathway to acceptance, understanding, and ultimately appreciation of my new home was to explore the trails, lakes, and trees on the weekends, and ruminate on them when back in the art studio, thereby producing artwork which is reflective, contemplative, and colorful, and unique to Bend, Oregon.”

One thread which can be witnessed in Dominique’s art is her colorful patternwork. “Creating pattern is a way for me to get lost in thought and submit to the subconscious mind when painting. I love the physical process of making repetitious brushstrokes. It provides me an opportunity to let my mind wander while slowly producing exciting combinations of color and shape. For me, it’s like walking in a meditation labyrinth, but with my hands and my paintbrush.”

Dominique’s paintings feature a variety of mediums: acrylic, oil and mixed media watercolor. Many of these artworks include hints of gold which morph through each medium she uses. Gold leaf, gold ink, and gold oil paint can be found throughout this spirited body of work.  “My multidisciplinary approach to creating artwork satisfies my desire to express an idea while using the best medium to bring the idea to fruition in each individual painting.”

“I am thrilled to display this collection of original artwork which features abstractions of our local landscape. These are more than pretty pictures: they contain an essence which points to the connection between spirit and earth, and are a joyful celebration of beauty.”

The Manzanita branch is painted bright gold; it's shape conducting the composition, referencing Japanese Woodblock prints and Van Gogh. Their luxurious shimmer reflects light. This painting wields negative space and features asymmetrical balance; the eye is drawn upward and arcs to the right, ending in a flourish of happy, pink, puffy flowers. The flat blue-gray greens of the silver dollar eucalyptus are a reprieve for the eye, and are a steady beat, balancing the peonies’ own crescendo of joy.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e \u003c\/p\u003e","published_at":"2019-01-16T12:35:36-08:00","created_at":"2019-01-16T12:42:45-08:00","vendor":"DOMKO Fine Art","type":"Fine Art Original","tags":["flower","manzanita","peony"],"price":78000,"price_min":78000,"price_max":78000,"available":true,"price_varies":false,"compare_at_price":null,"compare_at_price_min":0,"compare_at_price_max":0,"compare_at_price_varies":false,"variants":[{"id":14461801496618,"title":"Default Title","option1":"Default Title","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":false,"featured_image":null,"available":true,"name":"Barbie's Adventure","public_title":null,"options":["Default Title"],"price":78000,"weight":4082,"compare_at_price":null,"inventory_management":"shopify","barcode":"","requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_allocations":[]}],"images":["\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/2655\/4204\/products\/Barbie_s_Adventure.jpg?v=1556766507","\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/2655\/4204\/products\/DSC07412.jpg?v=1556766507","\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/2655\/4204\/products\/DSC07415.jpg?v=1556766507","\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/2655\/4204\/products\/DSC07407.jpg?v=1556766507","\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/2655\/4204\/products\/DSC07408.jpg?v=1556766507","\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/2655\/4204\/products\/DSC07409.jpg?v=1556766507","\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/2655\/4204\/products\/DSC07410.jpg?v=1556766507"],"featured_image":"\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/2655\/4204\/products\/Barbie_s_Adventure.jpg?v=1556766507","options":["Title"],"media":[{"alt":null,"id":3018111156266,"position":1,"preview_image":{"aspect_ratio":0.769,"height":2429,"width":1868,"src":"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/2655\/4204\/products\/Barbie_s_Adventure.jpg?v=1569452571"},"aspect_ratio":0.769,"height":2429,"media_type":"image","src":"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/2655\/4204\/products\/Barbie_s_Adventure.jpg?v=1569452571","width":1868},{"alt":null,"id":2856245362730,"position":2,"preview_image":{"aspect_ratio":0.747,"height":2901,"width":2167,"src":"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/2655\/4204\/products\/DSC07412.jpg?v=1569434959"},"aspect_ratio":0.747,"height":2901,"media_type":"image","src":"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/2655\/4204\/products\/DSC07412.jpg?v=1569434959","width":2167},{"alt":null,"id":2856245526570,"position":3,"preview_image":{"aspect_ratio":0.642,"height":3758,"width":2411,"src":"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/2655\/4204\/products\/DSC07415.jpg?v=1569434959"},"aspect_ratio":0.642,"height":3758,"media_type":"image","src":"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/2655\/4204\/products\/DSC07415.jpg?v=1569434959","width":2411},{"alt":null,"id":2856244969514,"position":4,"preview_image":{"aspect_ratio":1.225,"height":2288,"width":2803,"src":"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/2655\/4204\/products\/DSC07407.jpg?v=1569434959"},"aspect_ratio":1.225,"height":2288,"media_type":"image","src":"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/2655\/4204\/products\/DSC07407.jpg?v=1569434959","width":2803},{"alt":null,"id":2856245002282,"position":5,"preview_image":{"aspect_ratio":0.835,"height":3106,"width":2592,"src":"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/2655\/4204\/products\/DSC07408.jpg?v=1569434959"},"aspect_ratio":0.835,"height":3106,"media_type":"image","src":"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/2655\/4204\/products\/DSC07408.jpg?v=1569434959","width":2592},{"alt":null,"id":2856245035050,"position":6,"preview_image":{"aspect_ratio":1.548,"height":2501,"width":3872,"src":"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/2655\/4204\/products\/DSC07409.jpg?v=1569434959"},"aspect_ratio":1.548,"height":2501,"media_type":"image","src":"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/2655\/4204\/products\/DSC07409.jpg?v=1569434959","width":3872},{"alt":null,"id":2856245264426,"position":7,"preview_image":{"aspect_ratio":0.644,"height":3768,"width":2428,"src":"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/2655\/4204\/products\/DSC07410.jpg?v=1569434959"},"aspect_ratio":0.644,"height":3768,"media_type":"image","src":"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/2655\/4204\/products\/DSC07410.jpg?v=1569434959","width":2428}],"requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_groups":[],"content":"\u003cp\u003e \u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eAcrylic on Canvas, 2019 (18” x 24”)\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eA bright blue, pollution-free sky, gives way to breathing clearly. The pops of pink peonies are an indulgent, blazing, magenta.
