Gunnel Watkins

I work in the realm of contemporary impressionism.

My work is grounded in exploring, experiencing and expressing the essence of things.

I wish to 'see' not just 'look. What I 'see' I seek to make visible and interpret through 'an impressionistic lens'.

"Truth is rarely to be found in the external appearance of things".

I step into an image or walk through urban and natures textures with the aim of exploring and experiencing the essence from within.

“I believe that we take our magic with us and beauty can be found eveywhere".

When I explore I am present to natures law of impermanence and evolution. Every form is changing moment to moment...growing, decaying, expanding, contracting, evolving....do we live inside this reality?..or do we live inside an illusion of time and space.

Gunnels work has been described as poetic, fluid, original and multi-layered in interpretation and meaning.
