“Indivi's practice originates from her education at the Rudolf Steiner School in New York City, where the understanding of colour was intrinsic to the ethos; the seasons provided a deep understanding of how light, and colour penetrate our beings. Indivi believes this engagement with each colour in its pure form has manifested within her a sensory relationship with colour and how it feels; not just seeing, but feeling the tones that live within an object, element, or place and in each breath. The paintings are of raw linen and pigment powders, where the pigment imbibes the raw linen, allowing the colour its own expression. The colours that emerge onto the canvases for each work are formed from deep contemplation and observation of her surrounding world, the universal language of absence and presence, remembrance, and of hope and healing and essentially being human.
Indivi holds the resonance of the natural world's imprint on our beings and explores the indivisible nature of colour, gesture, and soul. The work seeks to unfold the individual pulse within each colour, while also connecting the viewer with our intuitive being; in doing so, it enables a deeper attunement to the subtle energies, ultimately fostering greater empathy, compassion, and contributing to the evolution of humanity towards greater unity and harmony.”
