Part 2 - Abstract Collection

Soft and Wild

SOFT & WILD ABSTRACT COLLECTION

Coming to Life

Meanwhile, outside in the cold days of winter, life feels still, occasionally absent. And yet beneath it all the rustling sounds of a winter dance. Listen, look, feel it all around you, growing while it rests.

SOFT & WILD GESTURES OF LIFE & STILLNESS

DSC_0245_edited.jpg

Painted as the base for a new textile collection, these Soft & Wild Abstracts were shaped by the wintery sounds and scenes taking place outside my studio window. Twigs, leaves, birds, berries, nuts and faded grasses, paired with grey, greens, earthy reds, gentle yellows and the soft touch of a snow white.  

These abstract works have been painted with acrylics, oil pastels and charcoal to allow for the layers upon layers that can be found in each piece. Because I love the expressionistic quality a brush can create on canvas, these mediums allow me to work both quickly and with movement.

Soon I found myself making friends with cranes as they nested beside the pond, and admiring duck feathers
as they warmly floated by.

Snow softly shapes the leaves, and as the waters freeze, a little leaf holds it pose with sparkling delight.

It was like making peace with the cold, absence of colour which has so long been the heart of my inspiration. And from this peace I discovered a new type of beauty...
