Turi MacCombie uses richly applied watercolor and gouache to create sumptuous and lively images of flora and fauna. Her large portrait like paintings of animals seem like snap shots of creatures personified: the subject caught in the moment of a flash bulb bursting, but before the light’s startling effect is realized. Her flowers lay in bright, delicate forms across soft paper, intricate and absent of pretense. MacCombie’s images are strong and elegant with dramatic and warm contrasts and a lively nature all their own. Turi lives and paints in Western Massachusetts.
