Artist Statement
We in the North

“No sky could compare to the beauty she was seeing above her, it didn't feel like some accident of nature but rather something that was purposefully unleashed on the world.”
- Adi Alsaid

The North is a raw wild expression of nature. My work and contemporary process is the by-product of my environmental experiences of living in Canada, it is dependent upon the immediacy of the moment, describing mood and self-perception. As a result the work that I am creating is the outcome of my subconscious.

My artworks are a collection of abstracts, portraitures and human forms, the outcome merges into range of artworks. The powerful story is told with a few non-representative strokes, which like many of the pieces, is dominated by black shapes. The portraitures leave you with a feeling of a person rising through the paint, emerging from below. There's something surprising, magical even, about how the broad strokes can depict a specific face or form and evoke something of the subject's personality or mood (as well as those of the artist). The female forms are a combination of qualities, such as shape, color, that ignites the aesthetic senses, especially the sight, a combination of qualities that pleases the intellect or moral sense.

Currently represented by Rouge Gallery in Saskatoon SasKatchewan, exhibiting at the VASA Gallery in St Albert Alberta in February 2015, and accepted to exhibit in the Naess Gallery in Edmonton Alberta for July 2015.
