ABSTRACT PAINTINGS, MIXED MEDIA and SCULPTURE
ART FITS IN EVERYWHERE....Batcules has embarked on a lifelong journey to study and explore the theory of colour, line and form as it relates to the past, present and future to develop a distinct visual alphabet that manifests the ultimate goal of finding the key to divine proportion. The great ancient philosophers have been a long-standing fascination for Batcules, and the path to knowledge of Socrates and Plato has been a major influence and source of inspiration. Plato’s viewpoint on the theory of forms or the theory of ideas holds that non-physical (but substantial) forms (or ideas) represent the most accurate reality. For Batcules dreams often reveal powerful messages in various states such as forms, which later become conscious ideas. Batcules and Abstract Painting The driving creative force behind Batcules is the theory of colour and form. Shelley Batcules is a painter best known for her distinct abstract technique created with a layered and textural visual alphabet comprised of patterns of dots, pixels and/or lozenges of colour mixed using the scientific principles of colour theory with the intent to create tapestries of complex psychological colour relationships and vibrations. The patterns and colour relationships can be harmonic and/or disruptive depending on the colour formula and palette, the movement and vibration of the pattern and how the composition forms the subject matter. ABSTRACT COLLABORATIONS: PAINTING AND SCULPTURE: Mixed media materials provide vast opportunities to take abstract ideas to a new level in terms of texture, form and exhibition opportunities notably interior and exterior installations. Batcules is consistently exploring new materials and methods to bring artistic expression to many environments.
