The Essence of Being is an exhibition which explores quiet contemplation and meditation. My interpretation of travelling through the shadow of self to experience our true essence.
I use my work as a form of meditation, healing. My work arises from a place of contemplation where I can explore a greater capacity to feel rather than think.
For me, my art is an organic process. Each piece of work can be inspired by nature, music or even a the change of the seasons…
Through the painting process an ephemeral feminine quality is organically revealed. Colour plays a fundamental role in my work. Each hue vibrating at is own frequency acting as a narrative for the painting instead of words or musical notes. My practice is influenced not only by painting, but pouring glazes and paints and drawing lines using graphite or pastels. I work intuitively to create artworks that reflect my response to the outer world or what I see and feel. Part of the process is editing the work. I do this by painting over, covering up or masking to illuminate the hidden layers.
