Hi, I'm Adele.
I'm a Resident Artist at the Tett Centre for Creativity and Learning in Kingston, On. Painting in a contemporary abstracted style focusing on gesture and colour. My work is inspired by nature's landscapes, using a minimalist style I bring balance in an attempt to decipher the everyday chaos towards calm. My intention is to create a mood or evoke a dream like memory that one can escape into while enjoying the playfulness of the abstracted peaceful vista.
All About The Layers
Building many layers of acrylic washes over birch panels and allowing the wood grain to show through. Then finishing with a high gloss resin or matte varnish that adds richness, depth and makes the colors pop.
