About the Work
Passages in rose, mauve, indigo, green and gold dance in a choreography of color in this lyrical painting by Milly Ristvedt. Color and the grid are the focus of this artist's work paintings that through one's lens of experience reveal a narrative. Here the artist refers to the experience of Handel's composition "Water Music" composed for the British King George I. "Painting is my freedom 'to be' in the world, to transform what I think and feel about life, to express the essence of things that matter. Color is the magical sensation and substance, the 'philosopher's stone,' that for me represents hope in a time of great challenge for us all."
