About Beverley Isaacs

“Imagine the clouds dripping ,

Dig a hole in your garden to put them in”.

HEAD IN THE CLOUDS- by Beverley Isaacs

 

The weather reflects how we feel and reflects our moods.

As a painter, I am concerned with colour, capturing light, energy and movement.

 

I painted these skies through the window panes of my large victorian window during lockdown 2020.  As clouds change consistently , so do our moods.  I hope these paintings will remind you of your own captured moment.

 

My aim is to portray the essence of movement and the lyrical quality of subject matter through energetic mark making.

 

Drawing and painting for me embodies the desire to capture in one image the reality of life, not as a single still moment but a series of many moments. I believe that all subjects around us both breathing  or inanimate have a vibrational energy , which in turn affects our surrounding space; Therefore in terms of artistic execution, the stroke perceived as a physical gesture, represents my primary means of expression.  In this respect it is crucial for me to work from life.  Only in this way can the related energy affect my work.

 

Spontaneity and accidents become a part of my process,  just as moments in time maybe expressed but not repeated.  Such developments are retained in my work, often serving to bring a stronger sense of life into a painting.

 

Regular experimentation with  materials  and techniques is  a way  for me to develop and find deeper ways of seeing and understanding the world, this has resulted in a diversity of themes depending on my  environment and passions at the time, however the common thread holding them together is a desire to capture movement, and energy.
