Letting Go is a series of small abstract works inspired by my daughter’s love for painting.
Watching my daughter paint, I envy her every stoke, splash and smear. Her absolute ability, confidence and delight in just letting go, not concerned of the marks and forms she creates or by how others will view her work. She’s not confined to colour theory, composition, proportion or form, or any other fundamental rule that shape and influence our artistic decision making as adults.
How on earth does one reconnect to this state of thinking or painting after so many years of education. How do you pull apart those rules that have been embedded into your entire psyche from day dot?!
So lately, I’ve been exploring just this. In order for me to ‘let go’ when I’m painting (or at least start the process of letting go) I have been testing out an idea; carrying on as normal in my approach to painting but I add a second canvas to the mix. I use this additional canvas as my palette for my paints for the landscape/seascape or whatever it is I’m painting that’s flicking my switch that day.

Without letting my inner adult try to lay rules upon them, I have created artworks on an unconscious level that I feel are truly pure and visually powerful. These paintings reveal so much of my inner thought process when I paint. They capture the emotion I put into my paintings, they dance to the music I was listening to at the time, they sing of the energy in my brush or knife strokes. They capture pure emotion. Letting go.
