“Recently, someone told me that they saw Goya’s light in my paintings. I had never thought about that, since Goya has not been especially important to me. Nevertheless, if I do not revere Goya’s works as I do Rothko’s, for example, it does seem that they have burrowed their way into my mind and have stayed there. I am not, therefore, alone when I am painting.

Everyone finds his or her own particular voice, tools or weapons. I discovered painting, and it is through solitary work in the studio that I have found a relative balance. Perhaps I was in the spirit of the great Romantics when I invented these landscapes – these compositions that vaguely bring a place to mind.  A piece of land that I keep on working. I wanted to paint the light after a storm, shafts of light, and the autumn silence…” Carol Bernier.
