Additional Information

Oracle is an original oil painting/mixed media that I created in 2018. Oracle was inspired by a photo reference I found whilst searching for new faces to practice and experiment with. I loved her profile and hair. It is always fun to paint beautiful hair and the result is super satisfying.

I especially enjoy painting dreadlocks, plats and braids. Only if I had models for my paintings. I am looking forward to a bigger studio space and some portrait commissions.

Oracle started with the stitch work. In the first stage, I would be stitching pieces of fabric onto my canvas using a sewing machine.I create arrangements as I am stitching. I like to make it as abstract as possible without much planning.

After stretching my canvas, I begun turning the canvas to work out the best composition. At this point, it was still undecided about what I was about paint. “Just play and take the line on a holiday” echoed in my head after John Olsen. “Grow like a flower”

So I finally start painting. No sketch, no grid, just a photo reference. It’s strange, but at a certain point of this deep involvement, the painting, it comes alive. The artist is no longer master of the painting but rather a slave of his/her own creation.

She is a medicine woman. Wise woman. Midwives. Shaman. Spiritual leader.

She came to guide me back to light.
