Sandi Westwood

Artist’s Statement

I grew up in Hertfordshire and my only ambition was to be an artist. Circumstances dictated otherwise and I became a scientist, working all over the world. Despite this different direction I always made time to paint and gradually the artist in me demanded more time and energy. I eventually settled in North Norfolk and managed to divide my time between my two worlds. Since having a studio built in 2002 I have been selling my paintings through exhibitions and more recently The Red Dot Gallery. I also paint scenery for pantomimes!

I love working with paint – it holds so many possibilities in the way it can be manipulated and the effects that can be achieved. I have worked with many mediums and like to experiment as sometimes other materials are needed to get a particular effect. I find inspiration in the natural world but like to explore the hidden dimensions we can’t see with the naked eye. Sometimes a fully formed image will enter my mind, often in dreams. At other times a glimmer of an idea will evolve on the canvas and may continue evolving throughout a series of paintings.

In recent years I have been developing a more spontaneous technique using free-flowing paint which gives an embroidered effect on the canvas. I have been creating oil paintings themed around planets and the universe – and these have evolved into a series of large mixed media images collectively entitled ‘Quantum Entanglement’.  They are infused with metallic pigment to respond to changes in the light and seem to bring together the artist and scientist in me.
