I've created this art piece to relate to how I feel as I listen to my favourite music when gardening and day dreaming in my backyard. Using a ballet dancer as inspiration and vibrant colours, this helps me to feel free and escape from negative feelings in my life. I use a unique technique in painting charcoal and then let loose with vibrant acrylic splashes. The colours are very bright and flouro. Only in person can you really appreciate the colour and brightness!
I link the dark contrast of the charcoal body forms to my emotions and philosophies on an existential purpose in life. I link the free flowing acrylic colour to my desire to think, feel, speak and share freely without negative barriers. I push the acceptance of nudity and baring skin; our skin shows the unique and beautiful journey in our life and should be celebrated.
