I enjoy how colours talk to each other and the challenge of making them work within one shared space. Line and texture fall into that same venture at some point and pose similar challenges. I never really know where a painting is going until almost the end. I can’t usually tell when, until I come away from the work and come back. So many new things are discovered, like how some detail needs to go in order for another to live, in the work.
Finding balance in every way is relevant to how we live and exist.
It is very hard to sit down and write ‘what my art is about’. I never really get it right! that’s true for years!.. So every now and again I try to re-write my artist statement with the hope I’m understood that bit better..
Lots of things come to mind when I paint and for lots of reasons I have the need to paint. Making art is the best way for me to express what I can’t put into words or sometimes even understand.. We live in a small corner of a small planet in a tiny universe.. where there are infinite galaxies and beyond, beyond, beyond… space is continuously expanding too by the way..
In any case.. the link here is a small indication and the rest is up to you the viewer.
I want you to interpret my art your way because it is also for you! 🙂
I am thrilled to have my work photographed and now posted to my website here in Work 7. This work came about so fast and is continuing into the next pieces with a small change in direction. I am looking at opening the space more in the work as per my post last week. I am excited with whats happening right now in my painting. The need to be out more in the open sketching plein air seems to be really helping too.
