Feature Artist Bio
By permission of the artist, The Cyber Art Show is pleased to feature the first of two 12-piece exhibitions of works by American
landscape painter Ginny Takacs (born 1948 in Chicago, IL).
Ginny Takacs is driven by a deep connection with nature and a desire to relay her vision in the most direct manner possible.
Growing up in Chicago, her trips to the rural areas are the most precious memories of her childhood. Trips to the Indiana Dunes, a friends Grandparent's farm and family trips to National Parks are the landscapes that caught her attention. As a child she was always drawing and painting so it is natural for her to express her reverence for nature in her art.
Takacs has an affinity for painting "en plein air" and also enjoys creating studio works using outdoor sketches and photos for inspiration. Takacs is mostly self-taught, her education comes from a strong work ethic and time spent reading and studying other artists works in museums, galleries and online surfing.
Ginny takes the advice of one of her favorite landscape artists, Clyde Aspevig, who says, "Finding the answers in the struggle to paint well is the best served by your own investigation. In the process you will reward your imagination and hard work by finding your own language."
Takacs has recently started painting with a palette knife. She loves the thickness of the paint application and the textual, quick, loose and gutsy style it conveys. She may stay with the knife or a combination of brush and knife because painting is a constant evolving process. She finds that experimentation is one of the most-rewarding parts of painting.
