Artwork Description

Watercolour on paper

Signed on the back.

Everything that can be seen can be broken down to shapes and colours. My paintings and drawings break down the visual and simplify it to shapes then fragmenting and merging them to produce an abstract image. Influenced by the 'automatic drawings from the early 20th century I try not to think about what my pen is doing to create a unique image.

All art by Tania Matilda

The technique I use to create my work is similar to the ‘Automatic Drawings’ which was developed by the Surrealists to produce drawings from the unconscious. Only when deciding what colours to use do I consider what the final piece will look like which gives a balance of absolute abstract with no control and a considered deliberate piece of artwork.
As the work is abstract with a hint of the representational the viewer can interpret the work in any way they wish. It’s like looking at clouds with one person saying they can see a lion and another saying they can see a pineapple.
The titles I give to my work usually bare no connection to the work itself apart from how I’m feeling at the time of creating the work. As the work is not consciously meaningful, I don’t like to give the viewer an explanation as to what I think the image means or resembles but instead, an insight on how I felt on that day in my studio when the work was created.The technique I use to create my work is similar to the ‘Automatic Drawings’ which was developed by the Surrealists to produce drawings from the unconscious.
