FROM HERE TO THERE
December 2018 -January 2019
Forest Arts Centre
By its very nature a transition is unfinished, but as it evolves, we have the opportunity to pause and discover special moments along the way.
The artworks created for this project are about the process of change and the anticipation that, in the midst, discoveries of something new and unexpected may be found. In the space a pause creates, our natural awareness arises, allowing us to be mindful and open to whatever is happening.
By letting go and learning to pause we can move our overactive minds gently into an empty space and find that happy place.
The artwork in this exhibition is very diverse, from painting to drawing to print to digital art. Irrespective of the materials and methods used, the main objective for the work is to convey a message.
Many of the pieces are digitally captured original drawings, paintings, etchings and pastels. In some cases tiny sketches and doodles were massively enlarged to make the marks more profound. Other drawings were scanned and assembled as montages in the computer. The larger signature pieces were designed and entirely drawn and originated as digital art.
As the project developed I became more passionate about colour and making marks. In the final prints the colours have been enhanced and images enlarged for maximum impact.
