Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork
Observations of views through windows and veils.
The effects of the environment play an important part in the making of these works; allowing distortions and additional layers to evolve in the paintings, light reflections from other sources bring an element of abstraction into these figurative studies.
Some of these paintings use the botanical somehow obscured representing the passing of time.
Pieces that may be observed as a Memento Mori.
Some touching upon the ageing process; in particular how this can mean increased invisibility for women.
The ‘Voile’ series using veils and net to shield from view what’s happening beyond.
Painted with a combination of pastels, oil, liquin and wax on stabilised papers
