Artist Statement

 

This body of work centres around the emotional life and the internal workings of the female experience, as I know it to be. The complexities of being highly involved in wounds, at the same time aware of a higher state of awareness that relieves those hurts. Its a very personal exploration which has been a largely intuitive journey, producing work that involves a high level of vulnerability. As artists we expose ourselves whenever we create, but to say openly, ‘This work is about my internal world, my failings and my realisations’, opens me even further. As a parallel to this statement is my methodology which is also full of risk and trust. I render my figures lifelike, painstaking work which requires all of my skill and concentration. Only to be followed by a highly intuitive stage involving bold decisions, holding my breath, risking the work gone before, and a lot of paint! This work is me- openly, lovingly and honestly presented to you for you to take what you like from it. Ultimately, I hope you find connection or understanding, or some kind of recognition that we are all, fundamentally, the same.

 

Much love,

Meredith
