The Tangled Garden
Amelia Birvé and Michelle Wheadon
In this joint exhibition, Amelia and I explored our curiosity with patterns and nature, experimenting with colour and movement to create the feeling of being in a tangled garden.
I had enjoyed creating a maze-like artwork for the QEH commission and wanted to explore the idea further. My images were all based on the construction of individual maze patterns, so that your eye could follow through each piece to solve the maze.
"Hot August Night" (pictured right) featured built up layers of paint, overlaid with glazes and scratched back with sanding.
Here are some of my paintings that featured in the exhibition.
