Myrel makes an imaginative journey between the worlds, using oils, acrylic and some watercolour, developing a story through time of imagined actions in grand spaces; they may have happened.

But it’s an abstracted story of an imaginary journey, leaving the subject matter suggested in order to link with the viewers imagination intuition and memory.

Myrel paints loosely in layers using a range of oil techniques allowing the image and its narrative to slowly develop.

Imagination is part of the viewing process

“It fascinates me how people see, how much or little imagination is needed to see into an image, Very little information can be enhanced by the individual’s experience history and understanding. Seeing with the imagination is part of the viewing process, even huge amounts of narrative can be added.
I weave colours and images in layers leaving room for the individual‘s experience to fill in the whole picture. To do this many colour glazes are used some lightly, some scumbled over an underdrawing. Because the glazes are filters, what can actually be seen changes according to the light- this is only really noticeable in natural light. Tones can balance and appear the same, receding, joining creating and completing the image.”

“Looking back at earlier works, I decided to revisit and reinvent through imagination my earlier ideas. These had been exploring our earlier belief systems and cultural history through symbols and narrative.
Part of this is the development of other worlds, in memory and imagination, how they can become intermingled and some parts are enhanced.”

“The ‘Entrances’ are the way into this through in memory, the way into recollection. Ruins explore older, historic belief systems and the concept of revisiting the past through its symbols, a pillar, a temple an acropolis. This series began after my visit to some ancient sites in Crete and Greece.”
