Natural forms, artefacts and museum objects are the starting points to Chanelle Walshe’s artistic practice. She looks at human bones and organs as well as landscape, rocks, flowers and horizon lines.
Regular observation of natural artefacts, isolated, in jars or on trays has affected her compositions. Walshe re-activates their aliveness by placing the object upon a platform, in a box or against a smooth surface. Her practice is based upon a series of tasks such as the investigative research through drawing, the isolation of a form, the play with light, colour and structure and finally the construction of a painted image.
