OPENING RECEPTION, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 26, 1-3PM
Starting a new painting, I hold back any thoughts and let my hand make marks where it chooses. If my thoughts are too active I play music to keep them busy, then the subconscious responds and the hand starts moving again.
When marking stops, I assess what’s there and freely lay colour, keeping watch where next to go. Forms and patterns evolve, it’s then I enter with intention, pushing to develop composition and interest until I like what I’ve done. Leaving the piece nearby, distance and time assesses if it’s really complete. I may add, change or remove areas until I’m satisfied and know it is right.
