Every place has its own personality, just like any person. Some places are a bit dark and brooding, while others are so sunny and bright they are almost annoying.. Victoria artist Stacey Rees captures the sensual and spiritual atmosphere of her surroundings in her paintings and illustrations.
I always find it interesting to compare the feel and palette of the different places we visit. Between some, there are only minor differences, but in other spots, it feels like being in an entirely different world. And in those places, often times our personalities may absorb some of that difference, too. As in Rees’ work, in which there is a wonderful sense of not just earthly but spiritual atmosphere, we can take on not just the physicality of a place but some places get into our souls– for better or worse.
Mr. Forager & I have visited a few soul-filling places. Do you have any place you’ve visited that had a profound effect on you?
