The Artistic Journey
Updated: Mar 27, 2022
I'm on a one way journey to somewhere, where that is, I don't know..
One of the things I've been working hard on over the last few months is to change the direction of my abstract paintings, finding new ways of expressing myself & changing the way I manipulate the material and medium I use in my work.
My inspiration is drawn from the natural environment & natural materials, and I have established a certain 'style' to my abstract art that has been evolving well and adapting to the needs of my own expression. I have now reached a point with my work where I'd like to head in a new direction, it's time to really focus in on where my inspiration is taken, and use that inspiration to apply directly to my work. I want to be more at one with the materials I use, and have a deeper meaning and connection between the materials in the natural world, and the materials used to create texture and build depth in my work.

I've decided to change the game up, start something completely new, and time to focus in on where my artistic journey is heading. I won't go into too much detail about what materials I use in my work, and the reason for this is quite simply because I don't want people to copy my work. But the materials used in my work are not regular materials you can buy from an art shop, they are dug, drilled, hand picked, mined, broken from the earth around us. This is what makes my abstract art unique, it's the time taken not only to complete the work, but to resource the products which are used in the work.
I am proud that I am now taking a direction to bring my work closer to the boundaries of my creative process. I love using metallics in my work, especially metallic gold, which is something I will continue to evolve as my style adapts to it's new belonging. This is just the beginning of a new adventure, and I will be showcasing many of these works during my exhibition which is upcoming on the 7th May 2022.
