Just wanted to say a big thank you to all those people who have been hitting FOLLOW on my grid this week! To all my followers, the old and the new. 👍🏻 But now I am sending all my longtime followers, wherever YOU are on a mission. To tell all of the new faces here WHY you follow my work. (Also because I’d love to hear what you have to say too!)
So if you’re new to my work, then take a look at my latest artist’s statement below:
My practice explores the processes of creativity and connection. Utilising drawings, painting, printmaking and installation. As a means to play on the perception and aesthetic of what I see.
In many ways, making art has always felt like a coping mechanism to me. A constant and nurturing relationship between my mind and I, forwarding messages to the surface of the artwork I create. Which became an allowance I give myself, to be present within the process of creating within the studio at home and on location.
Colour and marks, become primary tools in the communicating of energy that surrounds me, in the same way I might write a journal entry. Creating a flow of this journey I am making through my practice by questioning where and more importantly why we may unconsciously vacate to certain places within our minds in moments of pure loneliness.
