About Olivia de Posson

Please view my website on Www.oliviadeposson.com and/or contact me at info@oliviadeposson.com, 00447801239124. Life is full of colours. I love mixing colours, adding texture and creating light/bright effects. I try to bring life to my artworks and to express the breadth and depth of our emotional/spiritual world that is not obvious to concretely grasp nor to clearly express with words - hence the abstract style. I use all sorts of knives and spatulas (often creating my own large tools), mix all layers of colours together until their symbiosis creates the panache and texture effects I seek. As final touch I tend to add big bright lines over the finished work and across the whole canvas (like rays of sunshine) to bring structure and glow. All those colours fill me with positive energy, act as a source of inspiration, nurture my creative drive and help me dream. I sometimes add doodles and/or words that I draw/write automatically. These doodles often have the role of fictional framing. Doodling has always been part of my life; sometimes to emphasise my focus, sometimes to relax my mind. It tends to be a source of new ideas. I often enjoy adding quotes to my works, either emotional, humoristic or surrealistic. Automatic painting, doodling and writing act like meditation (that I also practice daily). Expressing myself freely on a canvas, a notebook, a piece of paper, and simply letting go / expressing my natural instinct, feels liberating and invigorating. I hope I can spread this positive energy to at least some of you through at least some of these paintings! PS: some rare pieces are dark, I guess we can't always be in wonderland... but there is always color in my darks !
