The Inspiration Behind the Collections
We are victorious.
This is an ongoing work. Here I am developing concepts drawing from my female African heritage. The circle is a shape that is inherently female and the abstracts in bold colours suggests to me the potential in womanhood, yet untapped.
I am intrigued by the masks, what we show, hide, and portray.
Playing with colours is a joy and I am always surprised by how a canvas resolves itself.
This collection of blue and white abstract paintings has developed as a signature of my abstract work.
It is where I will start any session in the studio. Led by instinct and impulsive response to music, it is how I find my flow.
The simplicity of blue in contrast with white is a pure platform from which I can enter other thoughts and emotions.
The representation of waves of emotion in this was, whether calm or turbulent, mark moments in my life resolving thoughts and emotions I cannot.
