Mary Sewell

This year I’ve been working in oils and mixed media. Focusing my attention on abstract mark making, using objects from my direct environment.

One of the main themes in my current work is being with the place or space I occupy both externally and internally; my physical environment and personal inner space. I use both photography and drawing as an integral part of my practice collecting details of shapes, colours, and textures of the environment I occupy. I have been using objects from my direct environment to make marks and allow spontaneous play to emerge. I am inspired by the work of abstract expressionism, exploring gesture, shape, line, light and dark to evoke emotion and movement. This currently gives form to my painting which aims to express that which is dynamic and the movement of where we are now.
