Colleen Guiney

“The process of making art is very much about accessing and exposing my emotional life. Most of it is from the subconscious so I’m not always in control of how it arrives on the canvas but I choose what to reveal and what to keep to myself. It’s a deeply personal thing. What I paint when I turn up to the studio each day is driven by my mood, my surroundings and by a particular momentum of the day. This is why I work on many paintings at the same time, all in different stages of completion.

Colour is as important to me as the technique and narrative. I’ve experimented and worked with colour for many years, and it plays a pivotal role in developing the emotional connection to a piece. I work methodically, layering and breaking up the surface with paint and pencil, adding, deleting and observing as I go. I find this process soothing for me and evolving for my practice. I hope the result is a connection to my work with a little curiosity thrown in.”
