The Light Within Nothing

The Light Within Nothing       60 cm x 60 cm

This is the first artwork of this oil painting series I created and I must admit it’s my favourite. The memory of trying out a new technique with the bamboo tool I used to carve out the the 0’s from the creamy paint will always stay with me. 

Whilst I was painting it and I saw how the warm yellow was reaching through the 0’s and I just knew the painting had to have a title with, ‘light’ included in it. Combined with the richness and earthiness of the top layer of oil paint, this painting is virtually radiating warmth and sending out a loving hug to you.

The texture from the carving out of the 0’s creates a sense of a landscape throughout the painting as it flattens and peaks. When you have spent some time with this piece you will begin to experience the rhythm that moves through it. If you’re looking to sink deep into nothing and to feel grounded to the earth this is the painting for you.

With the oil painting wrapping around the extra deep sides of 8 cm the artwork takes on sculptural quality that can be viewed from so many different angles that I just love. This is the only series of artwork where I paint around the edges and it’ll make this a real statement piece in your home or office.

These paintings are created over a long period of time with every 0 carved out mindfully. I focus only on that 0  and work very close to the canvas giving all my attention to the creation of one 0 at a time. The painting evolves one 0 at a time using this process. The focus is on the present moment (the present 0) not the 0 that has just been created or the 0 to be created.

Nothing from the Centre-Summer green

Nothing from the Centre – Summer green

20 cm x 20 cm

I love this warm green. Reminds me of summer school lunchtimes, lying on the grass chatting with my friends whilst the boys are playing football. 

I don’t think my 13 year old self could have ever imagined receiving so much joy from drawing 0’s!

I always start these drawings from the centre. It’s where it all begins. Feeling centred. Each drawing will share it’s own rhythm with you. As you look at within the circle each time you will be drawn into a different 0. Noticing the subtle changes in the size of the 0’s and how they all connect with each other. Seeing this connection will hopefully help you to connect to the true meaning of the colour for you.

Nothing divided

Nothing divided       60 cm x 60 cm

This painting represents growth and moving from the darkness into the light. This particular piece was started during a time in my life when much was changing and I moved from one country to another. From one life to another. So, the painting almost marks this transition even though exactly the same paint is used. 

The sense of change continues in the colour of the top layer. Sometimes reflecting a deep blue when viewed close up and a rich green from a far. We all experience big changes in our lives and I truly believe ‘life is change’. As life changes around us we also adapt and adjust. The splashes of the warm yellow peaking through the 0’s are the moments of how we can shine through these changes. 

If you want to taken to a different place each time you look at a painting this piece is certainly made for you.

Nothing merging into nothing

20 cm x 20 cm

Inspired by living by he sea and what lies within this painting is about joining and coming together. 

The delicate graphite drawings begin to melt away as they merge with the strength of the vibrant orange 0’s. Connecting to ourselves is all about merging and letting go. Maybe this piece will help you to let go and discover another part of yourself.

Nothing from the Centre – Charcoal

I love this contrast between the dark and the light. It’s clear and direct. Sometimes we need direction in our lives. Balancing the lightness with the darkness is part of the experience of being human. Embrace it.

As you look at within the circle each time you will be drawn into a different 0. Noticing the subtle changes in the size of the 0’s and how they all connect with each other.

Nothing out of the blue       80 cm x 60 cm

I love this combination of the sparks of turquoise with matt purplely red. This painting communicates a feeling of harmony and an unexpected sense of joy. 

The subtle colour changes between the purple and the reds are highlighted in the different textures. As life is sometimes referred to as a patchwork of experiences and this painting reflects this in the pattern of the carved out 0’s. 

Bringing these colours into your home will hopefully help to inspire and uplift you even on a dull cloudy day.

40 cm x 40 cm

Ever feel like you need a breather? This artwork symbolises how we all need to come up for air sometimes to find our own space.

Nothing from the Centre – Sky blue

Which colour do you find yourself drawn to the most? Me, if you haven’t already guessed. It’s blue. Any version of blue instantly quietens and soothes my mind. What does it feel like for you?
