Reality & Imagination
Working in an abstract style Chantal paints with a commitment to her artistic integrity and creative honesty; in this way her imagination is set free. In combination with the natural elements that motivate her work, the result is art captures energy, emotion and essence of subject and place.
Living in Torquay, the immediate natural environment offers diverse and dramatic sources for this exploration. Earth, air and water collide in the coastal regions where Chantal searches beyond the physical representation of a subject to discover through colour, form, rhythm and repetition.
"Each painting is a creative marker in time and in presence; an embodiment of thought and feeling."
