ARTIST STATEMENT

Fiona's work is a visceral response to landscapes, nature, and the environment, represented as fragments of memory. She primarily paints on canvas and paper, combining abstract marks with textural layers to create pieces filled with evocative energy. 

 

Her latest work, 'Songs of the Sea', is a small series on paper featuring tones of grey intersected with blue, grey, and brown. Each layer is dried, re-painted, and finished with rustic marks bleeding into each other, depicting a journey through fragmented landscapes and oceans. Songs of the Sea, is an abstract representation of the pollution affecting our coastal areas which endangers marine life and ecosystems.  Every is created using cruelty-free products.
