Medium: Acrylic on canvas
I am an occasionally emerging artist based at Kumara, where I work from my shipping container. Quite enjoy painting and playing around. Lots of ideas and colours. My inspiration is this West Coast habitat of ours: global issues, local flavours.
I was interested in portraying spontaneous movement in whatever way suggested itself. This painting captures the freedom of moving figures and the fun of seeing acrylic in motion. There is a sense of satisfaction in seeing colours come together.
COVID has meant I have spent more time at work in my container. The necessary tension between staying inside and painting, as well as getting some exercise in, may have been the driving force behind this painting.
