Snehi Jarvis’ visual impairment is no impediment to her creating beautiful art.
Her works are mostly acrylic pours: a style which involves putting all of the paint colours into a single container to pour it onto canvas, or otherwise mixing the desired colours and pouring them onto the canvas individually.
The method results in the paint settling in cells that bubble across the surface.
“You’ve got a single go at it,” she said.
“You pour the paint, and then there’s that balance between allowing the paint to do its own thing, and subtly manipulating the canvas.”
She tilts the canvas, and uses a dart and two types of heat gun, to create the patterns she is envisioning.
Several of the works were made with a similar approach, but with poster paint on wood as the materials.
Ms Jarvis is an artist that fully immerses herself in her works.
“With this one,” she said, gesturing to one of the many pieces displayed at the Kimono Lounge gallery, 99 Elphin Road, “I don’t even remember painting it.
“It was a really zen experience.”
Her series, Elemental, will be displayed at the Kimono Lounge until June 2. Owner of the lounge, Sarah Trousdale, will be in Europe for much of that time, but it will still open every second and fourth Saturday of the month, with live music.
