Sandra Beccarelli | Canvas - Artists Statement
My practice centres on opposing themes of movement and change, light and dark, order and chaos - in nature and psychological states I admire the way nature reflects and effects our emotions; mists dispersing to reveal clarity, lucidity in the dark where shadows shift and emotions change.
I see the shadowy area as a merging of two possibilities where change occurs. I see it as a transitional space, a disruption where consciousness and order lapse.
The word emotion comes from the Latin 'emovere', meaning disturbance, disruption. I pursue this idea in my work by creating structured systems then disrupting them, often selecting colours and directional marks randomly. Order and control give way to spontaneity and chance in my work.
