Shelley Batcules “oeuvre” or body of work is placed in four categories: abstract, portraiture, landscape and experimental. The website design follows these categories, and includes separate pages for each piece for the viewers closer discovery.
Over the course of time, Shelley Batcules has studied and explored a diverse range of painting genres, styles, history and materials resulting in her unique signature style and visual language. The creative process serves as the point of departure, meaning sometimes genre serves as the guiding force or catalyst, or topic and subject matter stands as priority to tell the story, through which flows formal considerations such as style, colour, medium and approach. Often Batcules chooses a mixed method to tackle placing power in psychological expression by combining abstract forms in portraiture or by adding words, and anatomy to lead the viewers path. All are a landscape growing forth from the artist’s mind – both when awake and while sleeping. Enjoy the dream of reality.
