James Bellaney, New Zealand
Painting: Size: 150 H x 150 W x 1.5 cm Acrylic on Canvas.
This work from 2015 came from my internal dialogue and my relationship with the medium. I set forth without any preliminary idea of a solid outcome. Using chance in every mark I happily invoked mistakes, a process which I repeated, until I got an effect that resonated with me. In using chance I feel I am closer with nature. This painting was part of my solo exhibition titled 'Riders of The Storm.' Inspired by The Doors, it is a metaphor for the times in which I felt as though I was riding through dark periods while listening to the song. The exhibition title also conveys part of the creative process which encompasses chance and thus seemed appropriate. Through this chaotic process, meaning is open for interpretation according to one's personal journey, allowing the viewer to connect with each artwork in their own unique way.
