Transmutation 6 by Sioux Tempestt
Transcending creative disciplines Sioux Tempestt creates abstract, mural, sculptural and digital art which meaningfully contributes to its context. Her work aims to create a narrative and connection as Sioux believes that art plays an intrinsic contribution to our wellbeing, health, and happiness – more so now than ever.
Intuitively fusing colour, form and materiality, in this new series Sioux reclaims paint skins conserved from her mural practice to explore the intersections of communicating in the digital realm versus actuality.
Exploiting combinations and states of substances, earthen originations converted to liquid forms undergo further transformation of state. Repudiated paint metamorphoses into palpable skins, a peeling process both gratifying and meditative. Eliminating preconceived constraints and expectations, a process of deconstruction and rejuvenation emerges.
