152.5 x 152.5 x 4 cm (60 x 60 x 1½ inches). Oil painting on canvas. Unframed.
This abstract expressionist oil painting from the collection 2022 is in a style the artist calls “evocative abstract”. A beautiful sense of quiet clarity is built up through mark making and a finessed colour palette – in combination with charcoal and oil sticks. The artist achieves a transparency with oil paint that is usually associated with aquarel. Impasto and sand are used to give extra plasticity and dimension to her work.
The artist draws on themes such as silence and the “poetry of just being” (inspired by the likes of Pessoa and Pasternak) – ideas are made emotion, to be expressed by texture and rhythm. Purely abstract, the painting evokes feelings, memories and images – stimulating their recall to the conscious mind.
