Of Her Dark Matter

About the artwork: 

Of Her Dark Matter is based on a poem about the awakening of sexuality in a young woman, this piece draws the female form in simplicity but has an explosion of texture and darkness from the centre of the piece representing all the feelings, sensations and experiences that are craving release.  The darkness of the acrylic is interspersed with light colour and gold elements.  

Modern, sleek and captivating design, this piece would look beautiful on any wall, drawing focus and attention through the texture work, you will find new elements to love each time you look at it.

The style is contemporary, with leanings to the simple elegance of minimalism.

This piece comes with original poetry work written by the artist as the inspiration for the piece.

Both artwork and poem are signed.

About the artist: 

I am a self-taught artist, I first began drawing as a self-therapy and reconciliation of myself after undergoing a double mastectomy three years ago which changed how I see the body and what female sexuality is.  I tend to be instinctive when I create and I work quickly on most pieces – I have never been the most patient of creatives.  

I am also a poet and many of my pieces begin in the written word and transform onto paper or canvas. Often these pieces will be accompanied by the original written piece that inspired them.

I use layered and textured acrylic to create a visceral quality to the works and to represent emotion, which I hope makes the eye linger and search out more detail – your eye becoming your fingertips and craving touch.  It is always a journey every time I draw or paint a body it makes me hyper-aware of how the outside world categorises women’s body, as a commodity, as an object, and how social media and public platforms dictate what is and is not ‘woman’, but it is also a reconciliation between my gaze on my own changed form and that which I control with ink or paint.

My work has previously been displayed in Parallax AF, Plathoes Cave, WATWA Art Girl Rising and showcased at the MASA-UK Gallery.
