Sylva Locke


Triggered is that time where something sets us off, an emotional explosion, either internal or external. I paint automatically trying to remove myself from the aesthetic process and let my subconscious decide which brush strokes to enhance and which to ignore.

At certain points I find the bodies and faces in my process. They narrate stories and meanings I’m not fully aware of yet I somehow identify with. I paint mostly with acrylics so that the layers dry quickly and the stories unfold at the pace that they need to.

Sometimes it is loud and fast, other times the images tease and whisper for days or months before they reveal themselves to me –  Sylva
