LOUISE CORKE
ARTIST STATEMENT

My pastels and paints dance! Let me explain… I consider painting like a dance that is pure gestural expression. I marry my heart to my hand and together they speak visual music. Sometimes the beauty, colours and light play are over whelming and I am forced to blurt the information onto the surface in quick strokes saying just enough about how I am feeling towards my subject rather than telling what my subject looks like. At other times I linger and drink in all that I perceive and gently caress the painting surface with delicate information out of pure respect and amazement. The dance on the surface is always unique, rhythmic yes, but not contrived. It must be genuine, it must express my inner most responses, and it must be mine and mine alone. Though I dance alone, I dance so others can enjoy and palpate the emotions of my visual music.
