It’s been an interesting ride working on this series. The pieces clicked together fast whilst exploring my own curiosity about my admiration for Henri Matisse’s organic shaped cut-outs. The process of understanding the attraction behind led me to a memory of an intuitive doodling practice I used to do when I was young.
Zoetic Forms is a combination of Matisse’s organic shapes concept and reversing my own little way of doodling nature based shapes/forms – presented in a more defined way instead of discovering forms from a mindless doodle.
Some of the pieces from this series contain a story related to living (zoetic) not just in the literal sense of being alive but rather the act of living.
With every series that I work on, I grow a little more, learn and unlearn so much – even things that go beyond my art practice. Eternally grateful for having this luxury of being able to create art to my heart’s content.
