Alicia De Lima-Caribbean Artist-Splash



 

Exhibition "Splash"

6 February - 3 April 2010

The Schacknow Museum of Fine Arts
Florida, USA

Notes to ‘S P L A S H’  

The technique used here: a squish, squash, squeeze, or a squirt, expresses what is called a ‘Splash’, whereby a free spirit flows by communicating with water and paint. ‘Splash’ responds to a stimulus of emotions, be it: Mozart, Albinoni, Beethoven, or even to twitters of birds…etc.   Here ‘Splash’ goes beyond the myths and traditional painting methods used with watercolours.

Astronomers show us images of the Universe as flowing colours; glittering stars, multicoloured supernovas, Mars as red, Earth as splashes of blues, greens and white. Even within our beautiful planet, through a crystal prism or a rain drop we see splashes of colourful rays.  From afar there is no specific form but just a surrealistic movement of colours; call it a river, a dessert, a forest or a busy city, all are seen as chromatic splashes.

Why the square format?  Square is masculine.  Why the round paintings? Round is feminine.  The balance between the two expresses equilibrium, maturity and sensibility. What is contained within each format, relates to an individual’s deep sentiment.  ‘Splash’ takes one into ones own existence, an introspection,  a sensory perception of  abstract expressions of our emotions without time, space or place such as is a: ‘Splash’.
