"This year I spent time in the marine forests along the Atlantic Coast of Georgia. The windswept trees that hold the dunes against the sea excited me. I present some paintings from a new ongoing series exploring this subject. The exhibition title, An Exchange of Forces, implies that the elements composing my paintings cannot be isolated but require a dynamic exchange to achieve my intent. 

Typically, I work rapidly during the initial painting stages. I use the energy of my body with expressive movements and gestures to apply the paint in a way that shows natural forces. In the later stages of a work I slowly go in with smaller brushes to bring out specific details and textures that contrast with larger spaces." - Robert Marchessault
