These playful abstracts can incorporate collage, fluid or thick luscious ink and paint, with flowing lines made from water soluble pencils, or dripped acrylic ink. Contrast and balance are key elements to each piece – for instance, a metallic or tantalising granulated watercolour pigment is so much richer laid adjacent to a thick, smooth, creamy texture. A mask or pressed flower may be juxtaposed against a graphic pattern. Every piece is undeniably unique. Every mark a journey of discovery.
Throughout, the Japanese view of wabi sabi, is a thread that runs through the artworks – a reminder of the beauty in the impermanence and imperfections of nature.
