A colour-drenched, vibrant piece, with a touch of psychedelia and a dream-like quality!
My inspiration for this piece, came from more than one place! Like many of my pieces, this one wants to convey a depth of emotion under the surface, but also, more than that, this piece has tapped a little into my childhood love; COLOUR. A time when everything seemed to shimmer and glitter with light, when all colours formed memories bathed in luminosity. This piece, is somewhere between waking and sleeping; a daydream of sorts, but with a playful side tempered by a curious mystery!
Later in life, when I was studying art, I happened across the 'Fauve' movement, and my love for the use of alternative colour as expression, as a bridge between reality and fantasy, was set alight. I don't think I have ever gone back. A lot of my artwork is the pure joy of creating something feasible- real, but with a fantasy based colour theme, a cinematic view, an expansive daydream :-)
Somewhere we can visit at any time we choose.
Made with Love :-)
