Shelley McKenzie

My work explores the process of making art. Each step in the creative process mobilises an aspect of being kinesthetic, sensory, perceptual, affective, cognitive and symbolic.

The work reflects my interest in the organising of space through the push and pull of layers of paint and other media. Incorporated into the layering are fragments of objects, shapes and patterns that are part of my physical environment and emotional geography.

Colour is used in a spontaneous and celebratory way.
