Movement of Life
At the beginning of 2018 the fiercest storm that I have ever experienced hit Muriwai in full force. It shook our house; foliage and branches were being flung thru the air; and the sounds of cracking, whipping, scraping, banging kept me up all night.
This powerful experience dominated my painting for the next series of work, energy roared off my canvas like the storm.
The storm series has lead me to another exciting field.I have been part of Anton Chapmans drawing class this last year. That has proven to be a fascinating and engrossing venture. I did not expect to see the energy and movement of the storm continue feeding into my new figure work.
In traditional Japanese aesthetics, Wabi Sabi is a world view centred on acceptance of transience and imperfection. Within the wabi-sabi concept of accepting the natural cycle of growth and decay I aim to capture the energy of movement and the colour of life.
