Circle of change was produced some weeks ago during lockdown and illustrate the way the mind feels, when overridden with feelings and emotions, the difficulty to deal and prioritise them while at the same time dealing with anxiety and depression that go hand in hand under those circumstances.
Step by step compilation on the creation of the tribute painting I did of my grandmother, who passed away recently.
Title : KEY HOLE VIEW
Original artwork. Acrylic on canvas 50x50cm.
The beauty of the female figure is a topic that has interested me since a very young age and during my early university years studying photography, I dedicated considerable time capturing the beauty of women.
Figurative painting, humour and the known topic of voyeurism colluded to inspire and generate this work.
I have selected it for the special purchase collection as feel that it be great for it to have a place where it will be observed, appreciated and part of a collection of original art.
Title : SCRABBLE
Original artwork. Acrylic on canvas 20.5X17.5 Inch.
2019 was a very hard year for me due to the loss of my father and my favourite uncle in a space of four moths. Throughout that time, when there were questions, feelings and emotions in my mind, I turned to my painting in order to put into context all those elements where light colours and layers make sense once the work was complete.
Like all my works, the idea of negativity or darkness is discarded from the beginning, as I do not see the need of including those factors when trying to simply depict my state of mind at any given time and knowing that there are plenty of positive things in one’s life at most times, and that by taking time to look around at the world around us there are people that have nothing. I hope that this special purchase will bring context and positivity to the viewer.
