2019, Level 8 Honours Student, IdeaSchool, EIT

I am currently a degree graduate at the Eastern Institute of Technology, specializing in oil painting. I have future plans to study the Masters’ creative practice in 2020.
I am influenced by 20th-century expressionist painting in the way those artists rendered the figure using highly contrasting colour pallets. Traditional life drawing sessions have driven my creative practice. Painting from life assists me to capture the essence of the three-dimensional forms, analysing the volume and size from different viewpoints by being in the room. My intention was to achieve images of the nude figure expressed through the materiality of the oil paint while applying a gestural energetic approach to painting allowing the paint to dominate over the subjects. The forms suggest a physical life-sized presence as well as life and movement within the compositions.
