Antoinette Burchill Biography
Antoinette's practice explores transformations. Links form, web like between notions, ideas and literature. These become clarified and then translated into a visual form. Colour, its use and application are vital to her work. She creates paintings that reflect and articulate her perception of colour as luminous and seductive. Keys, doorways and portals, entry/exits points and methods of moving between different worlds are recurrent themes in Antoinette's creative practice.

Artist's Statement:
The Dreamscape paintings are expressive, dynamic and striking. Antoinette uses a variety of opaque and transparent paints and inks, excited by the harmonies, contrasts and shifts in densities. Creating paintings whose images have the ability to emerge and evaporate whilst lying motionless upon the surface of the canvas. Antoinette defines the Dreamscape paintings as visual arenas, landscapes or portals into which the viewer can project their own ideas, hopes and dreams. The Dreamscapes allude to the visual phenomena, ancient myths and legends of the Aurora Borealis and Philip Pullman's novel 'Northern Lights'.
