Visual art - Donna Casa-Martin

Donna Casa-Martin explores and expresses her inner world through painting. She focuses on her experience of the environment, developing ideas for her paintings through observation and sketching. The artist has a special emotional connection with landscapes, and nature has always contributed to her sense of inner harmony. Her still lifes of chairs, pots and flowers are metaphors for the emotions she experiences and the relationships that have shaped her life.

Her artwork incorporates figurative and abstract expression. Colour, line, and a little magic go into each piece. She believe that art-making is influenced by the unconscious and this may explain the magic that appears in some pieces. Colour, movement, brushwork and collage combine to create the known and unknown in each composition. Constructing and deconstructing images is also a frequent component of her creative process. Each painting opens a potential dialogue between the viewer and the artist.
