About Philippa Westaway

 
 
  • Biography
    The philosophy of natural balance has great appeal to me. Objects and ideas seem to have patterns that evolve and devolve into new objects and ideas; the old is constantly reinvented from that which already exists, and in turn destroyed by what follows.

    The formation of my work is inspired by formation itself. Formation is that which surrounds life, with or without intention. My finished pieces are not directly intended as a means to create something new in itself. The prints that remain are the residue of exploring formation and patterns of life, both in and out of the studio.

    I gravitate towards circles to indicate portals that lead the eye limitlessly around the border of the image without the restriction of resting on a cornered edge.

    My finished pieces are like inkblots, in as much as they are ambiguous and the interpretation of the form relies as much upon the viewer's own experience outside the gallery as it does on the work in front of them, creating a dialogue between the formation of the art and formation of their lives.
