Intuitive Mythology Artist Statement
In my art practice, there is a direct flow from my intuition creating a random and honest play with colours and textures. I let my intuition be my guide, and then cognitive process tells me the next step. I don't plan what creature to paint; I play and play until I can see it, discovering the creature within. Once the creature is realized, I work to fulfill its life.
When the work is finished, I observe and try to understand the meaning which, for me, is the most important part. Intuition opens a creative channel that brings universal meaning about life. It is as surprising to me as it is to the viewer to understand the depth of the process and the creation of the work.
What does that creature mean? What words come up? What meaning does it have in my life? What question does it answer?
After I finish the painting I start working on the 3D textile sculpture, trying to relate the fabric to the texture of the painting. The 3D pieces to be displayed along the side of the paintings, as if they were coming to life.
