Inspired by the transparencies of water, the translucency of petals, and the opacities of foliage, Pardue explores the range of visual possibilities and the various combinations of opposing visual elements--the transition of color as it morphs from warm to cool, from saturated to dull, from light to shadow.
"Consistent throughout all of the work--the individual pieces as well as any series--is the element of singularity that is somehow compelled into existence for some reason or another. I consider this a microcosm- macrocosm type of relationship, but of course on a much smaller and more limited scale.” – Meredith Pardue
