  • Large scale colour and texture wall art on Box Wood. Measures 100 x 70 cms. Mixed medium. Varnish protected on quality deep wood. Ready to hang. This evocative piece emulates the sheer power of nature. After reading how Turner strapped himself to the mast of a ship in a storm to feel the full effects , I was compelled to produce a painting which conveyed my perception of this heroic deed. It took me several attempts to achieve my goal but it was worth the journey. A bit about the artist. After studying 4 years in graphic design and visual communications to degree level, Joey worked as studio artist and creative designer in various agencies. Essential experience was gained with design principals whilst allowing the natural development of skills and personal style. Joey discovered a love of large scale colour and texture through her early sign design and illustration commissions. Since then she has experimented with many forms of art medium and prefers mixed medium pieces. I never do as one should and love to mix oil and water texture and scale. I question everything and challenge everything, including myself. I never try and justify why I paint, just wonder why some people don t. My art is freedom. The viewer will inevitably come to their own conclusions. You either get it or your dont. The colour surrounding my work is just as important to the final effect, so I usually exhibit in large, light spaces with pale or rustic walls. Each piece dominates a wall, evoking many varied senses. Texture is there to add intrigue and gives a tactile, physical element. My work is highly varnished so people can enjoy touching the canvase, becoming almost sculptural. My favourite artists are - my children, Francis Bacon, Rothko, Pollock. They all dare to be themselves and are not stifled by fashion or politics.
