Mechanicalness

A series of mixed media studies on watercolour paper with pastels, water colours and acrylic were attempted on blank spaces to fill up the 'void'. Markers, pens, palette knives, anything she could get her hands on was used in this blind process of mechanical making without much thought. Her instinctive fight or flight movement centres got the better of her, a headless chicken trying to create something from nothing. A lot of energy was depleted in the process, though through experience she was aware that without a plan or a system there wasn't much more she could have established.

Her Body was the driving force, a crucial element in her process. With an understanding of colour she charged on, external factors being a distraction yet helping her focus that energy onto the canvas.
