OSHILAJA HEMSLEY
WALES, UK

I tell stories with my pastel paintings. They are narratives layered with colour and emotion, symbolic expressions of my travels and observations, and sometimes insightful studies of humanity and our body language. My art has evolved from the belief that any form of creativity cleanses our emotional bodies, and this led to further studies and explorations in metaphysical practises, allowing me to journey through expanded visions of consciousness to a world infused with light, colour, great beauty and etheric forms. Sometimes the paintings are channelled, but often, form emerges on a blank canvas through the layering of colour (in the more traditional methods of Abstract Expressionism). The techniques of my working process remain visible as they render a translucent, metamorphic quality to the pastels. This gives a vibrancy and rhythm that is wholly sensual... a timeless and contemporary feeling of movement in each painting, reflecting and celebrating the constant transformation of our soul journeys.
