Contribution to a
joint exhibition of
Life Drawing studies, sketches and pastels
8 November – 4 December 2018
The Print House Gallery, Dalston
I paint how I feel. Not what I think,
not what I see, but what I naturally feel.
I discovered abstract expressionism as an intuitive way to dig deeper into my emotions and to be honest about how I truly feel.
I love colours and I love the aesthetic of shapes and structures. I began to paint raw emotions and through that, tell my personal story.
I call my style Intuitive Expressionism, a careful, sensitive journey into myself, at the same time big, bold and intense, whatever my gut is telling me.
This show invites you to join me in my emotional microcosm. It is a chance to get to know me, but perhaps also, get to know yourself a bit better.
Partner Exhibition with Ben Wakeling
I spend time to embrace my emotions and imagine colours, shapes and structures. Whatever I can catch and capture, whatever is hidden, simmering or buried in myself, I let it come out through lines, streams, drops and squirts. From “Deep” to “Soul Searching” or “How We Are Wired”, my various embodiments of visible emotions, sometimes camouflaging, sometimes like grids, they all aim to capture my senses and your imaginations.
I call my style Intuitive Expressionism. I paint to connect with my “other” side. Joy, excitement, confusion or melancholy – through energetic synergies of colours, I keep exploring the depth of my feelings with all of their facets. Dozens of intimate manifestations of “me”. This show invites you to join the kaleidoscope of my emotional microcosm to perhaps uncover some of your hidden secrets.
