Corinne Natel is a contemporary artist, based in North West London, specialising in abstract mixed media paintings.
Corinne is inspired by landscapes, nature, cities, travel, fashion and media. Her work investigates colour, form, space and texture. Working with a variety of mixed media, a blank white canvas takes on a new form through the expression of energy and begins to develop a life of its own and a new entity, aiming to create vibrant and emotive works that allude to another world.
Over the course of her residency, Corinne’s work aimed to create a sense of energy by creating in a vivid space with the city surroundings in London. With the influences of the surrounding Bankside area, Corinne captured the energy and creativity of London in her colourful paintings. Corinne’s interpretation of the theme, ‘Now Everything’s Vivid’ is as follows:
“Life is very short and we should aim to live each day to our best fulfillment and embrace the positive of what we can accomplish even under struggles and difficult circumstances. To be present in the day and make this as vivid as possible – in essence, to be alive! This aim was to identify and capture this in my paintings.”
This special series of artworks was a development of the artist’s signature ‘Superluminal’ collection, which is a range of abstract paintings made up of acrylics, inks, fluid paint, and glitter. The new series that was created whilst in residency followed a similar process and use of materials working firstly flat using acrylics, inks and mixed media splashed on and then working upright with paints, inks and mixed media to build up and develop beautiful layers of colour whilst investigating negative space and form.
