Ahem, cue Vivaldi's classical music masterpiece: 'Spring'!
"This intuitive process of painting helps me delve into intangible, hidden, heart-felt places—something akin to painting as prayer. My unwavering interest in the unseen, whether magic or psychic phenomena, guides me to create, to destroy and, ultimately, mend. I let the paint leak, gather, and pool until imagery emerges—a mountain or a cave or a flower’s bloom. The movement between the paint and me, hovering, is like dancing with the ghosts of every person and each thing that has ever mattered to me. When I paint I gather all my experiences and channel them into my art. What I feel in my heart becomes visible and tangible." - Marta Spendowksa
