Trip the Light
New Abstract Acrylics
June 14 to July 13, 2014

“trip the light” : to “trip the light fantastic” is to dance nimbly or lightly, or to move in a pattern to musical accompaniment. It is often used in a humorous vein. To dance, especially in an imaginative or ‘fantastic’ manner.

Artist Statement:

Painting is a dance. I boldly go where my heart and movements take me. Sometimes a waltz, sometimes full on interpretive jazz! It allows me to be the happiest version of myself, it allows me to be free.

Captured photographic moments of simple vignettes surrounding me, evolve and twist into unexpected abstract expressions.

Acrylic colour and texture are spread across the canvas with rollers, knives, trowels … anything but brushes; spontaneous results develop.

My current body of work “trip the light” embraces the magic of patterns and light and the pure joy of freedom of expression. For me, it’s that simple.
