Artist Statement

The essence of Lancaster’s work explores erratic expressive gesture-like brush strokes through the medium watercolor and gouache, using a spontaneous watercolor media approach as the composition becomes more prominent and starts to reveal itself.  Lancaster builds up layer by layer allowing paint pigments to spill into each other colliding throughout the works of art to enrich the composition utilizing an unsystematic palette scheme.  She uses patterns, lines, shapes, and unique color combinations throughout her paintings until new colors and textures are achieved.  Bulky flat bristled brushes and round brushes are used to create a versatile variety of brush strokes, at times making quick curves with the brush, and swift marks with various sized & shaped palette knives applying gouache to make certain areas more opaque than others.  Lancaster’s works are expressive masterpieces revealing a story, she incorporates vibrant hues and eye-catching layers and textures within her pieces.  Lancaster creates different genres of work such as: abstract, landscape, still-life, and portrait paintings and prints.
