Judy Fairbairns – Isle of Mull
I work from my own emotion centre, intuitively, and often with a rebellious disregard for proportion and exactness. In fact, if I can break a boundary, I will, either in colour or form, and I love extraordinariness – the ‘otherness’ of things. I paint feelings and moods in colour, and it is more than usual for a colour to come into my mind – one I would never have imagined for that part of the work. I have now learned to ‘listen’ to my intuition on this as it is always surprising and always just right. All of my inspiration comes from the natural world, which really covers every subject you can mention, to some degree or another. I am particularly intrigued with metaphysics and the ‘beyond’ of everything and everyone. I move colour across the canvases, spontaneously and quickly, sometimes, to be honest, without really seeing an end result, which seems to unfold at its own pace. The spaces between the start of a piece and its (always obvious) conclusion can be days, weeks or even months. My work is there to celebrate life – there is so much of it to live.
