Crimson Boner. Blackberries, 2023, oil on canvas, A6

Crimson works directly in paint, without preliminary sketches, a reciprocal process between artist and painting. Call and response. She allows the paint to ask questions of herself and her place in the world. Pushing fluid colour; imagery emerges. She is curious about a self, revealed through this reflective experience, which may offer up some purpose, or a reason to carry on.

Time to drift and reflect are crucial. The clock stops. It’s beautiful to take time, to float. The thought experience is engulfing, diffuse and beautifully elusive. It contrasts to work, work, work. She’s worked since she was 13. Cleaning, nursing, caring, cooking, admin, childcare,typing, tidying, serving, listening, caring, mediating, enabling, helping; work many women her age may have done for a wage that never seems to increase, a constant side stepping motion. Rubbing her out. Wearing at her. Making her fade.

Brush strokes and colours trigger imagery. Thought materialises and evaporates. The orderly mind grasps but imagery slips in and out of focus. Mixed emotions and memories emerge; absurd, tender, personal. Themes become apparent; revealing Crimson’s experience of the world.

She is curious about the quality of thought accessed whilst painting.
