Fusions of colour an exhibition

IMG_4099

What appears on a painted canvass, what you speak of, the words you write, the fragrances of the spices that rise from what you cook, are all reflections of a past spent somewhere, sometime, a past spent in a buried context.  Colours have differing connotations for me......... red can mimic drama but not always, green a life among beautiful hills, blue and white a life lived near the sea. My work is based on untold life stories, a fusion of colours with meanings that can only be worked out by looking at them, by thinking about what they are saying to you.

I took part in my first exhibition 4 years ago, very soon after leaving a soul destroying job in London. I was exhausted, the newest member in an established semi professional art group and everything was exciting to me. It was a new world, with new rules, new expectations, new battles, new challenges and a very, very naive me.

This is my first exhibition where I exhibit with only one other artist. It feels so different, so exhilarating, so liberating. Funnily enough I can breath with ease, no unexpected dramas, no ego battles. Oh boy it feels different ... it feels good. Sometimes, in order to find yourself .. you need to go your own way, you need to take a leap of faith.

The exhibition starts on April 23rd until May 5th.

Private view: Saturday, 25th of April from 2pm-6pm. 

I will share my passion for intuitive painting and will speak a bit about how painting arrived :) in my life through 2 taster demonstrations on Friday, April 24th from 11-1pm and April 30th from 11-1pm.
