Creative Kernow

Una d’Aragona

I am drawn to make connections with the past, engaging equally with the history of painting and my personal history.  I take sections of classical paintings that frequently depict mythological narratives and deconstruct them through a gestural application of paint, weaving in elements of contemporary imagery.  The shape of a head or body within the multitude of swipes, dabs, dashes, and mark making, places questions of identity and meaning within the context of a meditation on painting and its history.

Often the process of applying swirling and vigorous brush strokes, removing and sanding back leaves a residue and traces of the past,  providing the humus of fertile ground for the final painting. Time, movement and colour are the fixed stars that I navigate around in my painting process.

I work slowly in the preparation and planning stage, thinking about juxtapositions and composition, contrasts and similarities, building the energy for the performance of the work.
