Description: Josephine’s artworks are full of life, as is evident in the high positive energy and visual impact she achieves in her art. Vibrant colours and dynamic movement are her signature. She loves to work quickly to music, because this helps her forget daily concerns. The result is a lively imagination, in the moment. Freedom of expression follows. Large, colourful, Abstract Paintings are her current focus.
Inspiration: Josephine says: “For my Abstract Paintings, Nature provides a wealth of ideas. It is an ongoing source of inspiring material. I am interested in colours, patterns and light. Plants hold special significance, as their leaves and flowers are beautiful and complex. They lift my spirits.
My Abstract Drawings are inspired by the body, music and dance. They are worked from the life model”.
Techniques: Josephine uses layers of paint to build the composition. This is mostly lines and shapes combined. She enjoys working in an experimental mode. She also works with the life model in artist groups such as Dynamic Drawing. Here she creates layered, abstract figure drawings and enjoys the company of other artists. She says: “It’s a great environment, because I’m free to express myself spontaneously and in the moment”.
Josephine has reached a high point in her creative journey. It is the result of many years of experimental art practice, colour studies and figure drawing. The reward for the hard work is to own a free spirit – spontaneous, innovative and bold – and happy to create. Even so, every artwork presents its unique challenges.
