"Part of the Ambition Bird series exploring voice and creative expression. 'Letters to a Poet' seems to be expanding into a series of its own; the work imagines a conversation between artists and poets across time, those who stepped into their creativity with courage, shining their light for future generations of artists to be guided by."
Toni Cogdell paints portraits of unsaid moments and unseen thoughts, the poetry which resides in daily life and in transitory moments. There is a sense of universality, an interest in the human condition.. “The Water’s Gift” portrays a woman, lost in thought, painted in rich tones which complement and merge with the background. Cogdell’s figures stand in ambiguous settings emphasising an intent focus on the cerebral. Every piece is painted with a carefully balanced palette and distinctive, contemplative composition.
