      ENGLAND'S VOICE

      ENGLAND'S VOICE

      'Translating our landscapes, ancient forests and open spaces, into worlds full of dynamism and stillness via coloured shapes, is the whole reason to be alive' 

      By physically exploring woodlands, nature reserves, fields and parks I have heard the articulation of the nature, the personification of our land some say. It pours out of me as a new visual language that I wish to express, making a mute form articulate. If we have a connection between a subject than the manner of Personification has significance.   

       

      The classic elements of earth, water, air and fire, combined with the sensory elements of fluidity, mobility, solidity are declared part of an abstraction in my paintings, into how a physical place is sensed. For me its trust in your instincts and paint it by translating it into a new visual language of shapes and colour which resinates from a location.  

       

      Paint seems to flow from my brush to fill in the gaps of a language not spoken. Humans invented speech and language to communicate with each other. We don't fully understand what whales say to each other, but we know they make sonic sounds that we can hear with technology. What if we couldn't hear them underwater, but only sensed that they were communicating with each other and us.  Is that a language that we should listen too. Does nature have a 'true voice' within the earths land and the trees, that is the question.  And if it does....What would it be saying to us right now in England. 

       

      My painting ‘Whispers in the Field’ exhibited at the RA Summer Exhibition 2019 recognises the fragile balances within our social eco world. It depicts a rich cultivated field which provides a sense of place, pride and cultural identity as the emphasis is on sustainability for the future and how we interact and work with nature, and not against it. 

       

      Within my paintings I use a various of processes of applying intuitive layers of paint to construct or deconstruct my paintings. Large brush marks are in contrast to the static floating shapes that she sees. The next stage is planned as  the image is based around those original marks to be incapsulated in movement or stillness and what I have seen and felt. 

       

      Berman’s result is an exciting style of Abstract Fauvism style of painting that creates a new visual dialogue to engage and sense with, by giving nature a voice.

      New Life style

      New Life style

      Make a wish, it can come true.

      Melanie's new contemporary art collection depicting wishes, nature and myths, has now been photographed on location at the One Warwick Park Hotel in one of their luxury rooms. These conceptual artworks natural soft style and designs, work brilliant in bedroom settings or modern kitchens, halls or lounge areas. Large paintings can actually make a room look more spacious and one doesn't actually need as much wall space as one would think.

      These paintings bring an interesting statement due to their originality and of use of colour and balance.  Be bold in the beginning when thinking of designing a room, think big.

      The new collection is being exhibited at 'The Gallery' One Warwick Park Hotel in Tunbridge Wells Summer 2017. All works are for sale and available on the website. 

       

      Have a inspiring day.
