Size: 42 x 59cm
Medium: Print of original in acrylic & chalk pastels on board.
About the artwork:
In 2017 ‘Little Houses’ was painted in my then new found approach of freedom of expression. Freedom to just splash colour & express how I was feeling, balance blobs of colour as form. The original is 90 x 75 on board which this is a print of.
The triangles represent people, partners, houses & groups of friends & families coming together be it on a bright summers day. I may come back to this with a more clean & crisp approach.. less Graffiti more geometric & refined; exploring colour & geometrics in a more dedicated way & create studies to come to larger abstract pieces.
About the artist:
Born in Adelaide in 1973 I majored in art at Brighton High school, focusing on the human form, several pieces I ended up selling. I went on to receive a Bachelor of Arts in the Visual/ Fine Arts majoring in Photography, sculpture & textiles. From my graduation exhibition, I sold several pieces to news presenter Leigh McClusky, which were illuminated magazine clippings which emerged as a collage effect based on Body Image.
For many years there was no art in my life until in 2016 when a sudden penchant with abstract art hit & I started expressing again, this time with paint. Gestures of emotions in vivid colours often painted with hands as well as geometrics in chalk pastels.
Now living in Ocean Grove, Victoria, I recently reinvigorated my interest in the human form, studying animals & people & an emotional connection between them, innately implausible however expressing the wonder & awe of life & this connection & a sense of love, along with a tactility, beauty & grace.
