The Spring

Bronwen Bassett, 2008

My paintings never painted on a blank surface. They start out as rubbings of natural forms such as plants and rocks in which I seek out 'hidden' structures. They are the result of speculation about pre-existing form and are the product of precise observation as much as of imagination. They are a blend of scientific thinking and wishful thinking. …I attempt to fix that brief moment which occurs after observation and before translation; the fleeting moment between sense and thought which is pure speculation.
