Yvonne Lodemore Biography
Yvonne Lodemore London based painter, born in London, UK. I studied Fine Art at Central St Martins School of Art and Design, London, and University of London. My work is an attempt to open a new window onto the world, its complexity in turn reflecting the many decisions we make in everything we do. I have always been inspired by things that I see, producing studies and combining different mediums to explore and release the potential. I often fragment the world I’m viewing, observing the detail and working into the minutiae, all the time endeavouring to create a harmony and structure that often concentrates on creating some kind of order out of chaos. The act of layering is important to me as it embeds shape and texture and builds a history that suggests an endless number of possibilities. This dynamic, and the interplay with the element of chance, often opens up an alternative space and an infinite set of relationships. I work intuitively with colour, brushwork, shape and texture to discover a new structure, rhythm and movement, all the time working towards a final composition that is balanced and complete. I also tend to work on several pieces at any one time, as I feel that each piece helps the other to develop and allows ideas to cross pollinate. Recent abstract works have been inspired by observations of compressed and contained materials. I have been working with grids, exploring rhythm within geometry. I have used the grid like structure as a device to explore the surface and move in and out of the shapes, spaces and intersecting lines. Numerous previous collaborative exhibitions include – Society of Women Artists, Westminster, London National Portrait Gallery, London. BP Portrait submission White Space, Islington, London ‘The Figure’ Arts Council of Great Britain UK Touring exhibition Recently – Gallery Different, ‘Sex and the City’ London ‘Art Jam’, Covent Garden, London Chateau Cabezac, South France 2018.
