This project is one of discovery for me as an artist. Trialling different techniques and abstract compositions it is my way of growing and understanding my style and voice. I decided that a series of paintings would show not primarily cohesion but a visual road map of my journey.
I had an idea to try and portray feelings and “states of being” as a human in an abstract way by focusing on colours and textures (with the occasional realistic reference).
Strange and beautiful words fascinate me and I set out to read the dictionary to find words that describe a “state of being”, a psychological state or a way of acting in a certain way as a starting point for my paintings.
