If you're an artist, what kind of art do you make?
I am...
I am inspired by wabi-sabi or the beauty of imperfection
I enjoy audio books radio plays music words books and poetry Sound changes my perceived hue brightness scintillation and directional movement whilst painting
I love to mix paint mediums and experiment with the effects.This can be the most exciting part of the creative process. My mediums are oils - tubes of oil paint oil bars oil pastels as well as charcoal and conte crayons mixtures of oil paints and dyes. I enjoy the texture consistency and smell of them. I paint with my hands and washing-up sponges onto canvases laid flat on the floor. It is a physical process.
About my artwork
I begin painting with a specific colour that I have in my minds eye. I then introduce other colours and begin to build layers on the canvas. These layers are then scratched off and layered over again like a palimpsest literally meaning “scraped clean and used again.”
I love the idea of previous markings that are not visible but are still an inherent part of the composition.
The layers are designed in a way to expose different subjects of the composition. These subjects are buried in the dark and light spaces and come out and disappear as the light changes presenting different aspects depending on shifting light conditions and mood
I consider each successive layer a generation to populate or depopulate the canvas as needed and create my own world as I go.
I like to create a world within worlds.
