SOPHIE MUNNS: HOMAGE TO THE SEED: THE SOURCE
I just posted this lovely painting, and more like it, at the Homage blog... click on heading above to read the post and see more of Sharmon's work with her accompanying text. I wrote to the artist as I was keen to share it and she kindly gave me permission.

whilst at Tumber I found these as well....
I have added a small excerpt below from artist Gina Adam's website which I must say I was really taken with as it touches on preoccupations of my own very eloquently ... the artist's statement is well worth reading in full if this speaks to you.
In my studio process, I examine through the making of art, my relationship with history, world mythology and creation myths that are both mine and others, and which relate to my immediate world. Chris Ofili in a conversation with Thelma Golden said that the more one talks about things that the more they become mythical. He says, “It is possible through belief, help, and friendship to liberate yourself and go to another place where you are accepted. That is what painting can be about. That through making paintings you get to a better place; you get to be a better painter.” (Golden 2003)

Ive been working with blues, browns and light colours of late... perhaps why this tugged at me to post it.
Tumblr is a pathway to so many rich worlds... I just happened to see the first image by Gina Adams in a tiny image on the archives page at Neutral Notes. That tiny little image compelled me to reblog it and then later add it to this site and in doing so discover the website of the artist.... where I found a certain kinship in ideas ... as I did with the work on the source form Sharmon. Worlds within worlds.
