About Me

Bangkok Memory

"Wendy Plotkin-Mates approaches the canvas to capture the sensations of colors and culture from around the world. The result: exceptionally strong and unique abstract paintings rich with color, shapes, texture and sense of place. She believes that focusing upon the abstract medium allows her to convey the message:that art, like life itself is a complex, layered journey where anything is possible."

"As each country has its own cultural spirit, Plotkin-Mates' works thrive on a diversity of style and format, each piece possessing a unique energy. From the Galapagos Islands, to Italy, Kenya, Prague and Costa Rica,Plotkin-Mates' work absolutely and cleverly transcends landscape interpretations of place, to capture the deeper essence of people, nature and meaning of place."

"In addition to being passionate about my own painting I am also devoted to a group I co-founded: The Independent Artists Forum. The Independent Artists Forum is a group of five women artists from five diverse cultures. The exhibitions we share promote our primary goal: to build a sense of understanding and respect for artists representing different cultures. The formation of this group and achieving its goals has been deeply satisfying to me." Wendy
