An encounter with Talulah Lautrec-Nunes canvases confers such feelings of joyful optimism. With everything so loose and full of potential, so loaded with effervescent colour and movement, the visual impact is startling. This sensation of elation felt by the viewer is the happy result of what is often a trying and frustrating studio process for the artist. Welcoming the challenge to balance colours that are not easy neighbours every brush-stroke points toward an immersive, immediate enjoyment in the reactive, physical quality of paint.
Lautrec-Nunes populates her canvases with bright jewels of colour and is no stranger to the intuitive game that is ‘abstract painting’. Of this new series she states “I am just allowing the works to be made and then see what becomes of them.” Tracing the movement of each colour and shape we are able to observe what appears to be a two way dialogue with the canvas, witnessing an artist opening up to the dynamic evolution and emergent personality of each painting, we are able to find something of wonder in each.
