Hello and welcome. Corrine Gilman here…
I am a self taught mixed media artist with a background in Communications Arts.
My work revolves around the communication of abstract impressions. Raw hand stitch on vintage and found textiles imparts a textural image of place. Mixed media collage and painting maps out the landscape. By listening to the whispers in nature and the forces of the unseen and mystery, I try and translate these communications through my work.
Nature provides the subtle balance of interaction between human and other sentient beings – animals, plants, wind, water and trees if we are willing to let our ego go and truly listen. Stitching and painting are my ways of “speaking” through those mediums. I rely solely on my intuitive sense as to where the work will go, letting it guide me rather than my guiding it. I am but a follower in nature’s rhythms.
I follow my muse recognizing that there are no mistakes only happy accidents in the blossoming of the creative spirit and I want to share this enthusiastically with you.
