Kym’s Artist Statement
I use drawing materials with oils and wax, to create abstract paintings that aim to evoke aspects of the natural world imbued with a sense of depth and mystery … that there’s more there than a surface consolation. There are strong connections between my spiritual practice and my artwork.
My approach is organic, ideally allowing each piece to evolve with a balance of intuition and intention. Nature’s colours, markings and rhythms influence my work on canvas, paper and board both consciously and unconsciously. The act of gestural mark-making, building up and removing paint, charcoal and crayon over many layers, mimics the way the landscape has developed over time. Traces of previous marks remain as a record of the inevitable process of change.
In our busy world, I am convinced that we need to reconnect with the ‘great rhythms and flows of nature’. (John Wolsely)
