Following in the direction of last year’s works ‘letting go’ when I found myself in the sky. This year’s work is exploring the liberation that being in the sky brings; of flight and freedom and being amongst the winged.
Once again challenging myself in expressing feelings, not for place this time but for the freedom of letting go. So I have taken the mark-making into the realm of flight. Feelings of the wind on your face, and the magic of hearing the skylark sing in flight. The lingering memories of dreams of flight and the sensation it conjures when we do.
I always endeavour to express my emotion and create work that has the ability to be felt by the viewer and not deliberated upon. I am hoping these works will evoke a reaction in the viewer, and that they have the ability to be touched. Creating work that has the capacity to be felt has always been my aspiration. Painting my thoughts and feelings and not what I see…
The work is in oil on wooden panel, with a variety of mediums for the mark-making
I hope you enjoy them
