Luana Asiata

I’m continually reimagining the world in my abstract interpretations, reducing the visible world into shapes, colours and patterns. Music plays a big part and can influence the way I paint or draw, rhythmically it sets a pace and I visualise colour vibrations.

Most of my drawings are in preparation for a painting either in oils or acrylics. Different objects, photos and words trigger a memory or a feeling and I try to interpret that in my work so that when I stand in front of the finished painting or drawing it takes me back to that memory.

Abstract art creates an inner world, you never really know where it will take you or what the end result will be, I love the explorative nature of it and the visual sensations that unfold.
