I am so excited to share these new collections of original paintings with you. These collectionscontinue to explore my interest in the pattern and botanical shapes. As in previous series I am particularly drawn to the juxtaposition between the orderly/formal shapes found in pattern alongside the untamed abstract representations of nature. This combination speaks to me of our internal conflict and our attempt to control and structure our lives, whilst also recognising the inevitable surrender we face and the breaking through of our true nature.
These paintings evolve in layers and to me don’t feel they become their true selves until there is depth and history within multiple layers. The interest comes in the detail and how the layers react to each other and work together.
To me, this time in existence feels like a time of great change. We have been living with duality for many centuries….chaos & calm, light & dark, structure & wilderness, the head & the heart, the masculine & the feminine, to name but a few. All of these are represented in my paintings and it is my hope to evoke an appreciation for how these elements harmonise, rather than fight against each other. I feel that perhaps it is time in the world to embrace the beauty in each of these differences and visualise how when we can work together for a better world for us all x
I am excited to be exhibiting new paintings in two Christmas exhibitions this year. The first is with Art Images Gallery in Adelaide. These three large abstract paintings will be showing at the gallery from November 17th to December 24th 2023. If you would like any more details about any of these works please feel free to contact me directly or the gallery.
