#ArtistSpotlight - Nicola Barth
Are there colours and shapes that you prefer
„It makes a big difference whether I paint with oil on canvas or paper or with acrylic. Oil paint is richer and for me a much more vivid colour with more luminosity. It is the most authentic of all colours and therefore my first choice. But since I have made new experiences with acrylic which is a very fast and expressive colour, it has taken me a step further. In the end the mixture is the be-all and end-all. I love the expressiveness of acrylic paint and I also love the richness, warmth and vitality of oil paint. I combine all this by underlaying a picture with acrylic and then painting it partially with oil, which gives even more depth and vitality.“

Silent Search - No. 83, 2017, acrylic on canvas, 40”x40”
I love this stage in the lifecycle of creating a painting. Everything flows fast and free, I feel it physically- with tingling skin, a clear mind and energy humming through my veins. It feels like being high. In the weeks to come I know there will be down times, where I slump in a chair, exhausted, and glare at the painting through heavy eyelids, wondering why I’m the worst artist alive. But for now I have this high. .

Coming from a background in fine art, Jo Dennis’ practice refuses to be defined by a single medium. Her photographic images are often layered with found materials and paint and are framed by an intuitive understanding of composition. Drawn to sites of neglect and decay, Jo is interested in "new and old ruins which allow us to connect ourselves to time.”
