Natasha Barnes, born in 1969, is one of South Africa’s most celebrated Abstract artists.
Natasha’s paintings take inspiration found in her travels and her love for the rich African images surrounding her life, this can be seen in Indian Summer as there is an expression of freedom and unhindered exploration in the painting. Her experience is transferred onto canvas in a myriad of expressive brush stroke and harmony of colour. Natasha’s paintings are abstract in that her creative process is to absorb the sensation of her physical experience then transfer to the canvas without looking at the subject.
Her name is known in galleries across London, Paris and New York. Her paintings show a display of organic expressions and freedom while illustrating a sensitivity of colour and tonal relationships.
“Every painting a door to travel through, a simple reaction of what is happening in my mind. Some days are quiet – some days are abstract.” – Natasha Barnes
