Angelique Hartigan Artist

Artist Statement

My energetic and vibrant paintings with trademark explosions of colour and partial abstractions are a way for me to explore the images and places I am drawn to, the process of painting itself and my own personality. I am influenced by the process, weather, music, colour, angles, shadows, my travels, the place in which I live and the artist Peter Doig. Expressive strokes of paint, together with more traditional mark making, are a way for me to both investigate the initial image and use this as a jumping off point to a more abstract style.

I’m often drawn to buildings seen through trees, across fields or seen from odd angles (see “Reach for the Sky, Regensburg”, Germany) and more recently the inclusion of a human element to bring a narrative component to my work (see “To the Sea, Massa Lubrense”, Italy). I develop my images through electronic collage pushing the colour, then work to music to dive into the process using a mixture of oils and acrylics, both separately and together. I use various techniques including thin screen print scrapings of paint across the canvas with a palette knife, controlled splashes, drips and spills. I like to work quickly with clean layers of colour, splashes and washes waiting for each layer to dry before applying the next and often working on several images at once. In recent years I have begun exhibiting locally and I am continuing to work with paint to develop my visual language and themes.
