Wild About Colour
15 - 26 April 2015
Opening Wednesday 15 April , 6.30-8pm
"My work is largely an expression of who I am and how I see my world.
I wish to know things as they really are, and fully realise the potential that this generates by attempting to penetrate directly to the heart of reality seeking to be free, clearer, wiser and happier resulting in perfect understanding, infinite freedom and unrestricted creativity.
Working toward this goal allows me to use an extensive range of materials which has the capability of expanding my work artistically, visually and emotionally. Responding to this creative energy results in a new journey exploring ideas and taking risks that are essential for me as an artist.
Using lost and found images, words and language, my approach is with a vision towards the expressionistic and contemporary. I paint using things that already exist; this is what feels true to me. I need to reflect on culture, past and present, producing compositions which are, at the same time, both provocative and whimsical. I intend to propel the viewer into scenes of seemingly unrelated subjects, both pop and edgy, creating a visual language of paradox and juxtaposition.
I want people to bring their own thoughts into my artwork."
