Haunt

Lahti brings a series of plein aire paintings, (work created on site as opposed to within the comforts of a studio) depicting places of personal importance to her, etched in her memory but now revisited decades later. Through quick and immediate gesture she portrays areas surrounding Youngs Bay, Fort Stevens and other locations around county.  

“Oregon is magnificent in its intense natural beauty. I spent a lot of time as a child exploring its wild landscapes. They were haunted places and I was a guest walking through, lighting campfires, laughing and drifting its waters. It began my romance with natural places that has continued as an adult. It understands; nature in its complete and pure acceptance of life is where I find the greatest acceptance. The artworks included to the show Haunt reflect some of the recent adventures I have had around Oregon in the last year and my response to it. Many of the locations are places I have memories of visiting as a child and/or are of places that many of my ancestors would have seen.”
