Gemma’s paintings of dark and light eschew traditional painting techniques, with the
artist using her bare hands to apply raw pigment to canvas. "When I am in my
studio I am untethered by position or possibility" Gemma explains, her paint stained
palms bearing witness to her colour saturated landscapes. A force of nature to be reckoned with, Gemma like the great masters before her, draws inspiration from the timelessness of nature and its ever-changing patterns. A raw intensity is conveyed through bold marks of textured colours and abstract imagery, which is both contemplative and meditative, a reflection perhaps of the artist's passion and dedication to the traditional practice of Kundalini yoga and gong.
