"When I was 10 years old I started learning what oil painting was about and I have been experimenting ever since.
These paintings are an artifact, a souvenir, of the place, the time, the process. I use color for light and space while working for solid compositions. The results vary in the degree of abstraction. I try to blend the abstract and the realistic. Sometimes I feel the need to distance the psychological implications of identifiable images: my work can be completely reduced to essential color planes. But when I refer to emotive archetypal images, renderings of recognizable objects is necessary“.
Bigelow’s award-winning work has been exhibited in Arizona, California, Georgia, Missouri, Pennsylvania, and in Florida and has since criss-crossed many state lines as well as the boundary lines between abstract and representational art.
