Art & Design      

Hope Curran, artist

" an outward expression of an inward condition

As an artist I paint. As a designer, beyond scenography, art direction & interiors, I design and manufacture logos & web pages for clients.  

 

As a painter, I look to engage a kinaesthetic experience. In the past I have looked to express movement and physical gesture in the application of the paint on the canvas, reminiscent of Pollock. I have also been inspired by Frida Khalo, Tracey Emin and Damien Hirst. I paint for myself but have been encouraged to expose my works. I did so in Paris in 2018 at the Gallerie Achronique in Montmartre. 

Currently I am inspired by Australian Tree Bark. Unable to return to Australia due to COVID, I find painting abstractions of tree bark soothing and connects me to my nature roots down under. 

I paint with acrylic, watercolour and/or oils. I did art at high school but I am mostly self-taught.

I do sell my works, if you like anything, please contact me. I also do commissions.

I love a little side hustle and mine is making websites and designing logos for businesses. Again, this is self-taught. Here are some projects I have done:
