In recognition of the intensity of the royal occasion, special permission had to be requested to present a collection rather than an individual piece. Ingrid was honoured to receive this approval, allowing her to include the entire narrative portrayed by the three porcelain pieces. Ingrid’s unique collection… Continue reading

Giving back with my art

Giving back with my art is an important part of creativity and my work, because the more I share and contribute, the more I realise I have…and all of these experiences are wonderfully inspiring gift.  Today I was invited to present a masterclass at my old high school, not only as recognition of my achievements but to celebrate the school’s 40th birthday.  I’ll share more about that in a moment.

The 40 year celebrations started a few months ago (December 20, 2014), when I was first invited as a guest speaker to MSC’s end of year academic awards…it was a wonderful experience, and honour to participate in; and then I was invited to help share in the school’s birthday celebrations.

A focus on contrast and value for lustre roses on porcelain

One of the most important elements of designing your work when creating mood, to communicate and idea or point of interest or to evoke a feeling from your work, is the use of contrast and value .  The focus on strong contrasts of light and dark in paintings is termed as Chiaroscuro, an Italian terms from the Renaissance where usually bold contrasts affect a whole composition.   I have focused on contrasts of light and dark in previous works which focussed on tenebrism; where dramatic chiaroscuro becomes a dominant stylistic device (see abstract tenebrist inspired painting on canvas and porcelain).

The Nature of Spring on porcelain

I love this painting! While I love most of my paintings, the journey of this painting has been wonderful, and I’m very pleased with the result of The Nature of Spring on porcelain.  I started this painting 12 months ago, and it has taken this long for the ideas to form and come to life, as explored techniques and ideas for my New Collection of works.

Planning a new collection of paintings 2014-2015

My new collection of works has flowed from the previous collection called Destiny and Love.  All of my collections are discerning the ideas and experiences I journey through, so in some way they are all in flow.  I started this new collection last year and I haven’t shared these art works online yet.  I’ve been sharing a few test firings which you can see here and here and experiments, but not many of the final works.

Before I start exploring my new collection of works, it’s important to review my last works, to reflect on the main understandings which lead me to new concepts.

Destiny and Love (2012-2014)

The main understanding which has resulted through the processes of creating these paintings is the unfolding of an understanding of destiny.  Is destiny the result of wanting what you want today, but realising that it takes longer… Continue reading
