Gaylene Earl – Artists Statement – 2019.
PLAYING WITH PAPER/RECYCLE SERIES
I am concerned with mark making and discovery in a work and endeavor to arrest the viewer’s attention and draw them into the painting.
My love and concern for the natural environment has seen me experimenting with satisfying ways to express this concern since 2006.
Recycle Series – 2017- 2019
Not wasting, recycling and reducing our impact on nature. This is often at odds with my creative process/life. Thus I hoard all my leftover and/or unsuccessful acrylic paintings, painted paper, anything of beauty or potential reuse. My works are colour field and take a sculptural form offering movement and texture.
My recent Offering “Recycle Series” arises from returning to play with these “leftovers”. To date, six works “Red”, “Green/Grey”, “Purple” “Big Red”, “Pacifica” and “Group Show”. This last, “Group Show” constructed completely from library deleted Art books and friends rejected paper art works.
