Colour and process are central themes in her work and she is particularly interested in exploring the push and pull that takes place in the dialogue between the artist and the medium.
Hemali’s work is heavily influenced by wonder, admiration and a fascination of the natural world. How strange that we are made from the same but different configuration of cells and atoms. So many varied and beautiful things made from the same building blocks.
Drawing also plays an important part in her art practice and offers a foundation for the work. It is the discipline of drawing that then allows her to freely explore in painting more than what she sees. The paintings are as much an extension of her feelings, perceptions, and moods as they are an exploration of paint, colour, line, shape and texture.
The material she paints or creates art with also influences the style of work she produces. By allowing the medium to dictate some of the creative process each body of work she produces has it’s own very distinctive look and feel.
The recent Faded Flowers series explores that moment just after the flower has past its full bloom and the beauty that continues to lie within. This series combines several of Hemali’s working practices. The paintings are first made using alcohol inks before being enlarged and cropped and manipulated on a computer.
Her newest body of work explores landscapes and seascapes. They are painted largely from memory and imagination but as with all her work the marks, forms and colours have previously been explored in her drawings. These scapes have been created using a diverse range of mediums and tools including acrylic, collage, ink and digitally on an iPad.
Drawing plays an important part in my art practice and feeds and offers a foundation for much of the work that I do. Drawing is the discipline that then allows me to freely explore in painting more than what I see. The paintings are as much about my own feelings, perceptions, and moods as they are an exploration of paint, colour, line, shape and texture.
You are able to buy work directly from my website or in person during the arts trail. I will be exhibiting at home or by appointment if you're unable to attend that weekend.
