Bridging the Gap between Dreams and Reality

'I dream the painting, then I paint my dream.'          Vincent Van Gogh

Artist Statement

My Inspiration comes from Music. It was Music during lockdown 2020 that was the catalyst that inspired me to take up painting again after 20 years. Today it remains the veichle through which I like to express my emotions and feelings through my Art. My approach is very sporadic, as I want to capture the energy of the piece. Music opens up me new places where I feel free, I set out to record that felt visual, its my journal of that moment in time.

 

My musical taste is quite eclectic and I would describe it as everything that connects with me, from Irish traditional to electronic with everything in-between. From the Music my work often takes the form of landscapes. These have always been the backbone of my work from an early age,

Sometimes the Music dictates a more abstract style. Through Art I want to remain spontaneous and not over think the piece asI believe each one is truly unique in my envelope of emotions.

 

 I enjoy seeking out new Music in various genres that connect with me.Friends often send me the music they have heard which I love as it proves Music is the Language of the planet. Through painting, I want the viewer to connect to the work in their own way.

 

I like to dance when I paint, this I believe natures that energy Im seeking to inspire me. I use electronic Music In my studio, this brings me back to my youth when I loved to go out clubbing. I believe its very multi layered genre of Music, with a multitude of styles contained in it. Its always there I find euphoria which I capture for my work , this then remains for me as a capture of time. To record that feeling, I use the Music title or a lyric as the name of the artwork, this serves as a record and allows me to communicate with emotion rather than dialogue with the viewer.

 

I enjoy experimenting with mark making and media and Im always trying new things which means my work is always evolving. 

I truly believe that painting is a medium that can evoke strong emotions and messages to an audience. Every brushstroke I make tells a story, conveys an emotion, and captures the essence of my work. For me, art is about pushing boundaries and constantly exploring new techniques and styles. Through my artwork, I hope to inspire others to look beyond the obvious and see the beauty hidden in the world.
