Frankie Locke paintinginsight

 

For me the creative experience is about physical vitality, revealing sensations where gestures are traced in marks and trails of paint, exploring tempo, stresses, rhythmic traces or gentle meanderings.

 

The sculpted forms communicate experiences of ebbing tides and constantly reforming shorelines of tumbling pebbles and blown tidal spray. Associations with liquid movements sometimes lead to areas separating into voids where the form begins to fragment as it moves further from its source.

 

My work explores movement and fluidity of surface and form and our relationship to that kinesphere experience of essence, being, existing, for the kinaesphere is around us all.
