"Inside out" – an exhibition about exploring unfamiliar territory. The eight participating artists have transformed a time of uncertainty and isolation through artistic expression. Each work reflects the outer expression of the personal and varied experiences of the artists. Through painting, sculpture and installation the intention is to bring artists and viewer together in emergence of the new.
“I am in the mood to dissolve in the sky” Virginia Woolf
The delight and joy I find in working with the expressive qualities of colour plays the most significant part in all that I paint. In this time of isolation, and being even more impacted by the subtle healing presence of nature, I have been able to find new delight in my constant love of light and colour. Whether it’s the silver light of Protea leaves, or the silken shimmer of a tidal pool, my salvation in this time of constraints has been to disappear into the ephemeral beauty of nature. I begin to feel as if I am very much part of the very air that is around me, and aspire to express this delicate yet powerful feeling in my paintings.
