Loosing Control – Floral Freedom
This blossomed into life as a collection of flowers drawn without looking at the paper but solely at the subject, in order to minimise interference from my conscious mind and confer the essence of the flowers as authentically as possible on to the page. I was committing to paper the experience of an ant’s perspective exploring the textures and forms of flowers, the pencil following my feet, tracking my steps. I focused less on the physical form of each flower, and more on the freedom to express their multitude of varying textures.
From these drawings I then developed a group of paintings which are an ongoing project.
