About the work:
Flow and Glow I, Original Artwork by Brigita La.
This piece is part of Radiant Dreams, a group exhibition showcasing the work of more than 50 artists from the Modern Times community. Radiant Dreams invited our artists to unleash their most vibrant work, embracing colour, movement and verve. The resulting works are a buoyant collection reflecting optimism, energy and hope as we emerge from the monotonous routine of lockdown.
“I’ve been so blessed to live by the sea during this long lockdown. I noticed that nature is unaffected by all of these problems that we humans are dealing with. The ocean, trees, sunsets and sunrises are as pure as always. The beauty, joy and happiness of nature are ever-present despite the afflictions of humankind. Throughout lockdown I drew my strength from the constantly refreshing waters of the sea and how the ocean renews itself. I see that water always takes the path of least resistance and flows freely no matter what. In this state of unpolluted beauty, I find my dreams. Nature is my bottomless source of inspiration. My ‘Flow and Glow’ series reflect these emotions of contentment and freedom. My painting process is very spontaneous, impulsive and raw. I like to create quickly without thinking or editing too much. My paintings could be considered abstract gestural landscapes. In my art I liberate myself of all rules & restrictions. It’s an intuitive process and I express my emotions through abstract marks, textures, shapes and colour combinations,” La says.
