Abi Whitlock’s statement

“My work focuses predominately on the human form and how the mind and body are affected when immersed in water. This is mirrored by the way light is refracted and reflected, distorting and enhancing colour and shape. My goal is to capture the way entering the water enables the swimmer to enter an altered state of mind; a form of escapism from the real world. I do this by drawing influence and inspiration from life on the coast, trips to the beach and outdoor pools. The way I work puts emphasis on minute detail and it’s of great importance to me that every aspect of the painting is imparted with this intricate value and depth as a means to fill the observer with the sense that they, too, are becoming immersed along with the swimmer. Although I work in a hyperrealist style; I ensure that the way I paint the water creates natural abstraction within each piece. Water and its interplay with light generate unusual, distorted and complex patterns, altering the perception of everyday images. In some of my most recent work, I also include the technique of acrylic pouring; using the natural fluidity of paint to mimic the fluidity of water. The vivid, marbled colours and the uncontrolled way they flow across the canvas help to create a sense of freedom in the work; a sharp contrast to the tight realistic elements of my paintings”- Abi Whitlock
