Art and the Creative Process – a talk by Rhonda Fenwick

Abstraction Reeds by Rhonda Fenwick

Rhonda Fenwick is a contemporary/ participatory artist
Tuesday 18th February, Seminar Room, Hatton Gallery, nibbles 6pm talk 6.30 – 7.30.

Rhonda’s work is concerned with Art and the creative process as a way of empowerment and transformation.

As Igor Stravinsky once said “I myself, having been created, cannot help but create”.

It is this example of inspiration which leads me to work with paint, mixed media, collage, write and film making – integrating the different mediums to create.

The talk is an attempt to explain the creative process of what that implies.  Uncovering the ‘hows’ and ‘whys’ and the idea that creativity involves stored memories containing them with new incoming data to create something unique.

In the words of Artist Brice Marden, he said “ultimately, I’m using the painting as a sounding board for the spirt…

You can be painting and go into a place where thought stops – where you can just be and it just comes out… I present it as an open situation rather than a closed situation.”
