STAY WELL & STAY CREATIVE

Sometimes i find my family of people while painting or printing. 

This can be described as 'BIOMORPHIC' meaning 'life & transformation'
These forms can be described as organic and abstract shapes derived from biology or living organisms


An all time favourite Australian artist of mine is Andrew Sibley. This work of his is an  example of how he uses discoveries on the surface during his printing process to develop into his painting compositions by eliminating what is not needed to reveal his subjects.



'Salt of the Earth' is an early Encaustic-Wax painting of mine.
It reveals an unplanned weathered figure as part of the landscape. It went through a process of many layers, changes and many hours of work before i decided it reached the final outcome i was happy with. 

My next post will show you more examples to hopefully inspire you to 

BE FEARLESS & LET'S BE CREATIVE

CREATIVITY REDUCES ANXIETY FROM CORONA VIRUS

Art makes my heart sing 
Please share your art & comments 

I felt compelled to write about the IMPORTANCE  OF  CREATIVITY  after feeling helpless when told "I'm just a visual artist & cannot help dealing with worklife changes due to Corona Virus"  

ART  &  CREATIVITY  STILL  MATTER

ARTISTS
  • give us the possibity to imagine a future beyond these dark times
  • give us inspiration with so many ideas
  • give ways of looking at the world & things differently
  • help us better deal with uncertainity
  • adapt their thinking to allow for the flow of the unknown

CREATIVITY

  • gives value to humans & is a practical process using your imagination
  • creates new ideas, possibitiities, is flexible & lively
  • works when there is curiousity, passion, knowledge & dedication
  • helps to solve problems, generate more ideas & concepts
  • gives confidence to your potential to make a positve difference
  • decreases negative emotions & improves medical outcomes
  • reduces stress & anxiety

Please enjoy my little artworks using various Encaustic- Wax techniques during my self isolation days
