Violet Storm celebrates the powerful, regenerative forces in nature. It is the chaos of a storm bringing scouring rains to assist new growth, natural erosion and the dispersal of seeds. Native to New Zealand, the seeds of the kōwhai tree have a hard outer coating allowing them to float in the water. In a ‘Violet Storm’ the kōwhai seeds would be swept away by the deluge, scraping against rocks before they settle on a distant riverbank. The gentle battering they receive enables water to penetrate the seed casing and begin the entire germination process. What in nature has the power to destroy also has the power to restore. A dramatic storm-shrouded landscape suffused in light, colour and shade. ‘Violet Storm’ is the featured cover art for the New Spring Collection Dark Mountain: Issue 17.

ARTIST STATEMENT “My work strives to depict the hum and dynamic interplay of colours and light, water and sky. Life: the warm sands alive with cockles; the light angling through the trees; the myriad reflections in a deep pool of water. I want the raw image, the organic aesthetic to enliven the canvas and the space it goes on to inhabit.” Kate Williamson, artist. “The artist explores this analogy by creating landscape forms which strip away the reality of the scene to replace it with something that gives the impression of moving liquid. This is particularly evident in the earth-fire-and-water composition Pool of colours, where the solidity of the landforms seem to melt into a flow of hue and light. A similar suffusion of solid elements is found in the sun-drenched Orb. More tangible lands emerge in the high country valley of Origin and mountain meadow of Light Scatter II, but it is perhaps in the deep molten undergrowth and solid branches of Forest Lights that the exhibition reaches a peak.” James Dignan, arts reviewer.
