ARTIST STATEMENT:

Living in a world with both societal and personal problems, don’t we all sometimes dream of finding an enchanted lamp, (like Aladdin did) that once rubbed would summons a mystical genie that could make all our wishes come true, or at least three! Would you make wishes for yourself, your loved ones, or humanity as a whole?

My current body of work explores my imagination, and my inner desires, hopes and dreams, through a series of abstract/expressive paintings each depicting a different ‘wish’ I’d like to see granted, not just for myself but for everyone in need.

I have a vivid imagination and dreams that run wild so I have created these abstract paintings by firstly writing words, affirmations, stories and feelings onto the timber surface related to each particular theme or idea.  I then use my signature technique of overlaying the paint, layer after layer, dripping ink, making marks and developing any symbolic imagery that spontaneously emerges into the artwork. I keep painting until I can see and feel the beauty and harmony that exists between the colours, composition and shapes, which often takes many painting sessions. For me, abstract art removes the burden of perfectionism that I often feel and allows the painting to evolve naturally and sometimes unexpectedly.

When the painting is finished, the hidden words and stories underneath the paint are absent from view, but they create an extra layer of depth to the artwork and enhance the overall message, emotions and theme the painting is conveying.

Each painting has been titled quite broadly as to incorporate many different aspects of the titles interpretation into the meaning of the painting.

Rub the magic lamp! What three wishes would you like the Genie to grant you?….then believe that anything is possible.

 

‘OUTSIDE IN’ 2017
GROUP ART EXHIBITION

Featuring Sacha Beverley’s ‘CONSTRUCT YOUR DREAMS’ Collection.
A collection of artwork inspired by the construction of the Gold Coast Light Rail.

EXHIBITION DATE: 3rd Feb 2017  - 3rd Aug 2017

LOCATION: St. Vincent’s Hospital, Pain Management Ward, Kangaroo Point, Qld.

ARTIST STATEMENT: “Looking through the window of my gallery and studio in Southport I see change. Everyday I witness first hand the construction of the Gold Coast Light Rail. I watch the construction workers actively designing, creating, building and transforming the face of Southport. I have become part of the change. Change is not easy…I see congestion, I experience inconvenience, I hear noise, yet without change we do not grow.
While change itself doesn’t always come with a choice, the choice of how we react to it is still ours. We can either allow ourselves to go with it or fight against it. I choose to go with the flow of change and capture its life and its beauty so it can be remembered and shared with others.”

Sacha was awarded a Regional Arts Development Fund Grant towards creating this iconic exhibition in 2013.

The Regional Arts Development Fund is a Queensland Government through Arts Queensland and City of Gold Coast. partnership to support local arts and culture.
