Synaesthesia – The Scent of Beauty 
November 2 @ 7:00 pm - November 16 @ 9:30 pm
This collection of paintings invites the viewer to a reverie into the subconscious, where the senses are free to mingle and perhaps create new and unexpected combinations.
The figurative and floral paintings presented in this collection are mostly inspired by the symbolism of fin-de-siècle Aesthetic Movement art, which valued beauty over purpose – art for art’s sake. While the collection of 12 small paintings, ‘Found Tranquillity Series’, is an exploration of the Tonalist aesthetic, which emphasizes the mood and atmosphere of a scene rather than its realistic details.
Her dream-like compositions, characterised by blurred edges and backgrounds, almost cast a hypnotic haze over the visual. In this sense, these works can also generate a sense of synaesthesia* through which a variety of responses to the painting are produced and the viewer’s experience is naturally heightened.
