Beijing Love Spell – works for sale

Polly Williams

The 2016, ‘Beijing Love Spell’ series of acrylic on handmade paper artworks were created in response to a romantic love affair. Produced in Tian Jia Ying village on the outskirts of Beijing at Little Poems Art Community artist in residence. The artworks were made in response to my experience as a foreign artist navigating communication in a traditional Chinese village surrounded by farmland. My daily life was one of being isolated by language working in the studio and receiving the neighbours as visitors exchanging handshakes, nods and cigarettes, along with visits to the local grocers and bus rides into Beijing on the weekends to see my lover.

These paintings we created without plan or intention. The Colour shapes, placement and textures are raw and immediate. They are courageous and vulnerable at once. Therefore, they are a visual emotional response to my time in Beijing.

The Yogjakarta series was painted during a visit to my friend, Malcolm Smith. The works on paper were painted as a sensory response to the sights and sounds of Yogjakarta.
