'day dreaming' - maggie cecchin

Sunday, February 15, 2015
My current series of works have evolved from more than decade of experimentation with painting; in particular the materials of painting. I enjoy the materiality of paint and relationship between paint and surface. In seeking authenticity in my work I have drawn from my love of simple form, colour and tactile sensibility. I find inspiration in the natural and built environment encountered in my everyday life as an urban dweller. Rather than reproduce images my works aim to express the inner significance of places, objects, textures, surfaces and substances I encounter in my environment.
