LEE-ANN HEATH | TELE-POLLINATION
Aug 21 – Sep 12, 2021

'I draw my inspiration from my direct surroundings and imagination.
It has always been an obsession and challenge to find the fine balance between glazed thin applied surfaces contrasted with thick impasto application without compromise. My style of painting is an accumulation of years of experimentation.
My current landscape paintings consist of 8 large canvasses identical in size which in itself forms a large landscape. These landscapes are gateways open to interpretation. I call it "Tele-Pollination". This to me is an amalgamation of teleport and pollination. It seemed fitting because there is a definite cross-pollination that takes place during my painting process.
My method of achieving the desired result varies. My choice of medium is oil because I can simulate sensation. Using syringes, palette knives and brushes I create the desired effect. I also grind and mix my own paint to expand my colour palette.
At present, I start with a sky backdrop to create a required mood that would in turn ignite momentum for what’s to follow.
I would start perhaps by making a particular flower my main character and build the rest of the narrative around that. This often changes as the process unfolds.The cross-pollination of colour, form and texture is a spontaneous process. When the intentional meets the unintentional I have my “ahaa” moment.
