Syl­viane Gaumer is an avid back­packer pas­sion­ate about the mag­i­cal trans­for­ma­tion of a black can­vas into an invit­ing land­scape. In­spired by the spe­cific col­ors and light in the Sierra Moun­tain range, her work is con­stantly evolv­ing to­ward the best ren­di­tion of the emo­tions she feels when she is one with na­ture.

“I spend a lot of time with Mother Earth. It is part of my daily life to walk, hike or back­pack. Na­ture is my main source of in­spi­ra­tion, and that is where the call­ing is for me right now,” says Gaumer. “Through my brush­strokes I want to share with you the trails of the Deso­la­tion Wilder­ness lead­ing to breath­tak­ing views of [the] alpine lakes. I want to cap­ture the smell of pine nee­dles and bark, the earth­i­ness of mush­rooms. I want to con­vey with my palette knife the rough­ness of warm gran­ite. I want to in­vite you to em­brace the ce­les­tial blues of high el­e­va­tion, un­touched by pol­luted air. I want you to take off your shoes and jump in the pris­tine wa­ters. I want you to stop and con­tem­plate what is of­fered and so of­ten ig­nored.”

Gaumer re­sides and works in her home stu­dio in Grass Val­ley, Cal­i­for­nia, and is an As­so­ciate mem­ber of Oil Painters of Amer­ica, Amer­i­can Women Artists and Women Artists of the

West. Gaumer’s Alpine Lake col­lec­tion is pre­sented at CK Art Gallery in Sacra­mento and at Art Works Gallery in Grass Val­ley.

Gaumer’s solo ex­hi­bi­tion Roar of Na­ture in its Sim­plic­ity at Ar­tize Gallery in Palm Springs, Cal­i­for­nia, presents a col­lec­tion of land­scape paint­ings cel­e­brat­ing the Joshua Tree Na­tional Park.
