Fine Art by Gillian Kennedy Wright
My art encompasses two bold diverse themes, the whimsical illustrations on one hand and on the other hand the more serious fiber art themes.
On the more serious side…of my work are my fiber art pieces. I am drawn to more in-depth minimalistic, bold, textural exploration of multicultural portraiture. Yes, we are truly one people, in mind and thought but are just separated by geographically imposed extensions of our thoughts and ideologies. I seek to explore, capture and create statements of harmony making meaningful life statements through a myriad of faces.
As an avid gardener I am intrigued by and enjoy exploring the details of plants and showing “the what if’s” of their existence in different forms. World architectural forms, curves, patterns, color and shapes make bold statements in our landscapes. As we “capture” and try to “tame” our environment, architecture is entwined with plants and us as a people. What if they were portrayed in a different color? What if they had different textures from the norm? What if their shapes were explored and reconfigured? This is the essence of my themes as I develop various series that intermingle with each other.
