Venetia creates sensory and experiential work to express an intuitive, visceral connection with the world.  Tapping into the felt and unseen, she is inspired by the cyclical rhythms of nature and her creativity is a homage to this elemental connection.  Ideas are developed through play, ritual, collaboration and engaging totally with the senses.  The ecologically informed artworks focus on transformation and reclamation – creation often emerges through destruction and dead matter can be transmuted.

Regenesis

(A Homage to Algae, the Elements and Transformation) ‘Nothing Endures but Change’, 2018. A group exhibition of ephemeral sculptures curated by Susan Haire of The London Group. Part of the Waterloo Festival ‘Transforming Minds’ The Greek classical elements of earth, fire, air and water were considered the building blocks of all matter. Algae is often believed to be the source of life. Inspired by the alchemy of the elements and the cyclical rhythms of nature, Regenesis is a homage to transformation through the recycling process. Wood from a loved dying cedar tree was used to create the sculpture – creation often emerges through destruction and dead matter can be transmuted. Changing states alter our perceptions ‘when you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change’ (Dr Wayne Dyer)
