New Blood Art Statement

See artwork in-situ
Churchill paints reminiscent but abstracted forms: at one point a series of monkey portraits emerging from this abstraction. This body of work shows an idiosyncratic and engaging tact with colour. Her work explores hybridity, Darwinism and morphologies of forms, sampling and reconstructing different terrains and organic matter. Most of all the work emits a dynamic curiosity and sense of wonder. Churchill’s work has been published on the cover of Volume magazine and she was invited to exhibit in the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition 2008. 

Artist Statement

My work takes inspiration from nature and landscape painting to explore the format, referencing cloud, land and seascapes. The horizon is a connecting and repeating point, with prismatic light a central focus looking at ways to create otherworldly spaces. Alongside these paintings are portraits that are often representations of indigenous people from around the world, from Papua New Guinea to the Americas. There are several strands that run thematically through and I look for different ways to sample and interlink the images that appear, with reference to biomorphic structures, natural world photography and botanical illustration. I often use colour gradiented and chromatically, looking at ways to recreate how light and luminescence looks, taking inspiration from photography and the colours created in nature, from jewel-like insects to deep sea creatures and their neon bioluminescent forms.
