2015 was a year that captured more energy and enthusiasm than ever. As I continue to build on my recent works, I want to take the time to reflect on the year that has past. I am excited to share with you this issue of Art Edit Magazines feature on ‘Editor’s Pick – The Best of Abstract Art’. Art Edit profiles 17 featured artists that capture the essence of abstract art for 2015 and I am honoured to be featured as one of these leading artists alongside the collective of creative Australian talent.
ABSTRACTION ALLOWS ONE TO SEE WITH YOUR MIND WHAT YOU CANNOT PHYSICALLY SEE WITH YOUR EYES. IT IS CREATIVE INTERPLAY BETWEEN THE CONSCIOUS AND UNCONSCIOUS MIND.
I love the theory of abstraction – it is a powerful tool that transcends us beyond the tangible. Loosely drawn lines taking shape from the act of letting the painting evolve and uncover itself – where each free flowing brush stroke sings it’s own scripted course. Vibrant colours, texture and movement are inherent within my works of abstraction. I like to soak up the atmosphere, escaping into what has presented itself this particular day and turning these scenes into colourful abstractions of my ever-changing surroundings.
I often find myself seeing everyday objects and places in leaps and bounds of rich colour and texture – which may be a reflection on my ‘global wanderer’ personality, seeing and souring inspiration from all corners of the world.
