New Blood Art Statement

Throughout art history artists have been reflecting on the nature of life.. take Gaugin’s painting for example:Where Do We Come From? What Are We? Where Are We Going?  

Similarly, an authentic, existential and earthly thread runs through the subject and materiality of work by new artist Colette LaVette. LaVette uses sustainable and ethical (cruelty free) oil paints which she makes herself, working on bamboo and other sustainable natural papers. Through her sensitive practice the artist navigates her way back to the essence of the organic world, expressing her own esoteric and beautifully tender portrayal of our relationship with the universe.

Stylistically she embraces classical elements, elegantly fused with aspects of a more modernist approach. Her colour palette - neutrals, ethereal pinks, ochre, violets, grey and earthy reds…

 

Artist Statement

I am a sustainable painter and sculptor, exploring human creation and our place on earth. That being sometimes conflicting and other times harmonious. I have travelled the world, which strongly influences my work along side design principles learnt at university and beyond. I seek to create beautiful, honest depictions that add to the earth rather than take from it.

I use sustainable, cruelty free oils that I mix myself from natural minerals such as iron oxide with walnut and linseed oils, and use alongside earthenware clay. These are applied to surfaces made of hemp, bamboo and organic cotton canvas, all of fine art archival quality.
