An instinctive, mixed media, process based painting method informed by a close observation of the natural world and of your inner, dream world. Through the merging of these two worlds on canvas a SOULSCAPE ™ is created.
Instinctive art relates to art as our natural impulse, innate in us since birth. I believe that to create is our most primal instinct. You only need to watch a child who has just learnt how to hold a pencil or crayon and see how they draw with absolute spontaneity, no thinking, no planning – just creating!
Where inner and outer landscapes merge.
"Jassy’s soulscapes awaken an ancient memory of the sacred relationship between human and nature."
I chose to call Soulscape an Instinctive process as I have found that as I have deepened my artistic practice, not only has it become more and more visceral in that the images I create arise from strong emotion rather than logic or reason, but they are essentially spontaneous and impromptu; born from natural, instinctive creative impulses. I seldom have a plan or even know what it is going to happen on the canvas. Not unlike intuitive methods, it is a process whereby the canvas often informs the artist; the story unfolding layer by layer, mark by mark.
Soulscape however, aims to assist you in creating images that come from developing a deep, intimate relationship with both inner and outer worlds. Soulscape is where earth connection meets creative expression; it is a visual recognition of the interconnectedness of ALL life.
The INTENTION of SOULSCAPE ™ is for you to:
* Explore and observe the natural world creatively.
* Journey inward and investigate your dream world.
* Ignite your imagination.
* Recognise art and design element basics.
* Explore mixed media applications.
* Discover unique ways of expressing yourself creatively through a process of personal evolutionary steps and trial and error.
* Merge inner and outer landscapes.
* Unfold and develop story in paint.
