Lot 331 - Perdita Sinclair - Re-connecting
I am interested in capturing a sense of shifting time and space in my work. I want it to not quite inhabit the known world but be more like a dreaming space where meaningful and whimsical fragments of the day happen to have washed up. In this space, elements melt into one another - feelings into ice-cream, sea markers into volcanoes, London Underground tiles into lochs, colourful plastic wrappers, and road signs into a mill-pond-like sea.
I keep returning to waves in my work. Not just sea waves but waves as a metaphor for building tension. I see these building tensions everywhere, in the state of the world, in people around me, in my own head, and in the mundanity of day-to-day life. Thinking about a rising tide in a literal and metaphorical sense. I like to imagine what is going on under the surface of the paintings, in the same way that sometimes the most interesting things in life are what is left unsaid.
Most of my practice is painting, as the joy and liquidity of this medium allow me to explore my imagined world whilst creating it. Sometimes, however, a work lands more solidly in my brain that demands to be sculpted or videoed. Like my diverse inspirations, there is no hierarchy of mediums here, but more a utilising of different senses to explore my thought process.
