Landscape/Seascape Paintings in Mixed Media including Collage and Abstract.
Kate Rosie B.A.Hons (Fine Art) My work is primarily concerned with nature, whether it be landscapes or seascapes. Through expressive brushstrokes and mark making, in mixed media, I continue to explore and play so the process develops over a period. This can take weeks or months until such times when the work intuitively realizes its own kinetic energy through paint leaving the viewer feeling the connection between the life force and movement within the frame. Recently I have engaged in an online course working towards abstraction as an experimental departure from my semi abstract work. Collage is an important element of layering through assemblage of different forms, creating a new whole, combining images and text informing and strengthening the fundamental concept of what it is to create art.
