“I’ve always tried to paint to reflect the things that strike me in this world. Not objectively, but in essence: nature’s strangeness, patterns disturbed, the cheeky spirit in kid’s drawings, sorrow in music and suburban scrawl. These paintings don’t begin with an idea they start with paint, and the paint becomes a transmitter, allowing the invisible to broadcast.” – Mignon Steele

Mignon Steel – Transmitter from Egg & Dart

Mignon Steele’s work is an exploration of paint as matter. While many contemporary artists reject traditional media, Steele waltzes a deep romance with paint, viscosity and colour. The paintings are largely about themselves, problems; created and solved. History and enigmatic colour build a patina, and with the wry twist from a naïve heart and hand, each mark unravels. Each artwork struggles to address what is vitally compulsive in creative work, to paint what she cannot help but paint.” – Alex Richmond
