About Zizi Lagadec
A one line summation of my relationship to art: Air allows me to breathe but art allows me to truly FEEL alive. Art Concept: I don't really have a concept as I prefer to 'allow' whatever it is that triggers 'inspiration' inside me, to emerge, in whatever form it decides to take. I experiment constantly and in many cases, I have absolutely no idea, when I start 'work', what will appear. Perhaps, because I am not tied to a particular medium or idea, I am free to evolve and diversify without any boundaries. I am aware that I used to see in 'blobs' or particles of colour and that, instead of solid 'mass', I viewed objects as billions of particles, floating close together. If you look at Millicent Mouse (oil pastel drawing), you will see what I mean. But recently, the way I view things has changed, enabling me to see in blocks of colour- a eureka moment for me! So, with a new & exciting vision of the world (initially explored in my tentative ink line stroke drawings of animals) I have now become bolder. Landscapes (such as 'Looking out to Sea' and 'Marine Z16') represent the world as I see it now. Yes, there is a sense of joyous simplicity, yet things are not quite as simple as they seem. This is, of course, a reflection on life too. These new works invite the viewer to see, without thinking....whilst leaving the way clear for them to become a diligent observer, if they wish to look deeper. Ambitions & Dreams: To design fabrics for Liberty Co UK (London). To exhibit at Saatchi Gallery. To complete & publish my novels & to turn one (in particular) into a film, with profits going to charities worldwide.
