Bridget Allaire is an American-born artist who lives and works in Finland. She paints abstract works in oils, but sometimes her work refers to Finnish nature. She also is an accomplished orchestral musician and often combines the two art forms in her collaborative art projects with musicians and orchestras.
"The colors of Bridget Allaire's palette collide and combine to produce a space formed by lines and surfaces. The artist asserts and yet at the same time circumvents something while she works, shuttling within a symbiosis of different art forms. Musicality melts into the painting, sounds thrive within the image. The paintings, with their rhythmically sure and uninhibited emotional reflections, are demanding. The lines and colors don't follow their normal paths, but rather roam as primal forces, revealing a gateway into form. It gives us a glance of our own humanity, a landscape, or perhaps an abstract world."
