Split Second

Sheila Grant's avatar Sheila Grant

My most recent body of acrylic work is entitled The Emotional Landscape. I am drawn to abstraction in my painting because it omits form and representation, thereby removing our tendency to categorize. Color, texture and movement take over as the avenue of expression. These acrylic works utilize a variety of fluid paint techniques and my own creative intuition. I allow the paint to lead me, trusting my inner compass to guide me towards its’ own unique result. These methods have allowed me to explore the depth and movement of color and invoke time/space metaphors of the emotional realm in my art. I hope everyone that views my art is able to experience the intricacy of emotions and how they arise with multiple nuances.
