Mind Map 3
Mixed Media on Wood
The process of creating art is unrestrained and unplanned for me. I work in an almost meditative state and allow my tools and materials to create lines, shapes and colors spontaneously. As the piece progresses and the feelings and emotions within me are given release onto my canvas, I am later able to engage conscious thought and carry the piece into its final state.
This current series, ‘Mind Map’, is a visual documentation of the emotional and psychological activity that takes place in my subconscious mind. These pieces convey momentum and energy which represent the constant flux of my mind. Simultaneously, isolated islands of stillness in these works reflect the peace that often interposes between the otherwise persistent whir of activity.
Mind Map III was created using mixed media on wood. This piece is a busy interplay of colours, lines, shapes and textures. The work teeters between being in black and white or colour. There is a flurry of curved and angular lines, a variety of distinct yet merging shapes and several materials are used to create different textures.
The intricate and multifaceted nature of this work is in keeping with the state of our minds – with complex and often elusive thoughts and emotions interacting to create a chaotic yet intriguing dynamic.
