Silencing the Chaos
by SHEILA WHITTAM
This new series of work has taken me in a direction which opened my perception brought about by the laying down of the material itself.
New directions were concurrent with world events that startled us by its intensity. I engaged with the effects of turmoil by allowing impulsive unruly play in my work. Disorder tends towards order – this influenced me as I engaged in the basic elements of abstraction towards resolutions. Surfaces undone, reworked, and remade, (un) intentional irregularities evolved – fundamental to my compositional aesthetics.
This process took me finally into ordered silence of elementary beauty.
