Natalie Synnott, Artist (Sydney AU)

Call me old fashioned but I still see a glimmer of romance in not being able to function in this world without art. It would be horribly grey to look at a bowl of fruit and not be able to pick it apart and see each citrus or banana wrapped in another colour or pattern, or just to look at the world and say “okay”. A lot of my work is a response to despair and  sometimes it is okay to soak in melancholy because it births a state of reflection and can enable you to enter parts of your mind unseeable while giddy from contentment or wrapped in the arms of a lover.
