Yes, I'm still on my white hobbyhorse. I can't help myself! These glorious pieces just keep drawing me in.
Amadea Bailey's work is exciting! Shades of white ..... layers of torn paper..... movement .... magic! A bonus for me is that she once lived in my neck of the woods and she speaks of a life I am so familiar with.
"I grew up in Africa riding horses in the bush, eating sugarcane by the side of the road, and playing dress-up with banana leaves. I experienced a sense of freedom and abandon, and an immediate connection to the tactile, physical and non-rational worlds. Now, as an adult, my paintings reconnect me to that awakened child of Africa," - Amadea Bailey
Primitive by Amadea Bailey
I'm not quite sure what the whole physiological effect of white is on me but basically it calms and inspires me. It's considered a spiritual colour amongst the Zulus and I notice that it is a sacred colour in many other areas of the world too. It also stands for purity of life, peace and simplicity.
