Glastonbury, So - United Kingdom

Rosy,your Earth Stories series is remarkeable abstract work. I love abstract pictures particuarly when there is just enough form and detail to get me started,to give me a few clues of interpretation (although I can enjoy complete abstract too) These paintings are packed with emotion. Pain and sadness, but also beauty, hope and strength .I really love the glowing variety of earth tones and the intrinsic sense of grace that flows through each work. v/f

Earth Stories 3


Rosy Hall


Painting - Acrylic On Paper


The living quarters of the women (harem) was called the seraglio. They were kept separate for the pleasure of the sultan. Therefore there is a sense of voyeurism in �looking into� these quarters. Though the quarters were often very beautiful they were nevertheless a glorified prison and the women, caged birds of paradise. I have morphed the female figure from flesh to part of the architecture to express the sense of being locked into her surroundings. I like the earthiness of my women friends, their ability to be who they are without apology, which is why I painted in earthy colours. Rivalries there may well have been among women in the seraglio, some of them savage, however women forced to live together in close quarters can form deep bonds of friendship.

This seems a fitting tribute to those �caged� women I worked with in the past and their ability to rise above their surroundings. Their spiritual strength is a constant source of inspiration as are my closest women friends. I find not only acceptance with my women friends, but earthy humour, raw courage, untapped sources of strength, and affection.

I painted this, as I do most of my abstracts, in an intuitive style by first placing a few pieces of coloured paper shapes. No reason behind the choice, just 'that one!'. After placing them where I think they belong, I will loosely paint in some more shapes and then just leave it to sit and communicate where it wants to go. That's when I really rely on my Muse. Capricious she may be, but she loves a challenge. I tend to follow her lead up until the left brain has to take over and organise, compose and generally tidy up. But she always has the final say :)

Earthy colours in acrylics, some collage, on Fabriano. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED - COPYRIGHT Jenirose Hall. Figurative/abstract/contemporary art, FAA logo does not appear on the print when purchased. Original is for sale.
