Aleta Gudelski is best know for her dynamic and passionate oil paintings of New England barns energized with vivid color and texture. Aleta artfully merges abstraction and realism creating a visual journey from ordered chaos to peaceful repose.
"I cannot change the world, but I can create quiet centers within my art where others may consider its meaning." - Aleta
Painting is my interior response to the world around me. I am driven, sometimes with passion sometimes with deep concern by the beauty and power, of the created world and its effect on man. My work continues to be a journey of letting go of myself and allowing the Divine to work through me and through my brush to capture images that reflect peace, at times tension and frequently subtle challenges. The Subject of my work most often reflects everyday life and encounters I experience as a woman, artist, mother, and teacher.
The words of Piet Mondrian summarize my journey as an artist. “The role of the artist is humble. He (She) is essentially a channel."
"Humanity is surrounded by divine art. My life's work has been an artistic adventure to capture these images of joy bringing pleasure and occasionally, introspection to one's heart, mind and spirit." - Aleta
Master Painters who have influenced my artistic journey are: Willard Metcalf, Richard Diebenkorn, Peter Poskas, Georgia O'Keffe and Hans Hoffman. Master teachers include: David Dewey, Dean Keller and Peter Zalenger.
