About the artwork:
A special piece— the first painting I made in my new studio. It was joyful working on this. Fully intuitive, raw, and in the moment; a feeling expressed in rough, carefree mark-making and a spontaneous play on colour.
I got this tip from one of @yumisakugawa’s books: Before doing creative work, try and ask your art: “What do you need? What do you want to become?”, then listen with all six senses. Let go of fear, follow that creative impulse and see where it takes you

About Ivy Pangilinan:
career in 2011 as an advertising art director, transitioned in 2015 as a freelance
designer working with clients both local and international, and only intentionally
began her art practice as a painter in early 2017.
As a self-taught creative, her practice is inspired by the natural world,
spirituality, and the vibrancy of life. Currently, her work is defined by two main
languages — color and contrasts. Color that seeks to convey raw emotions and
stories by raising intrigue through an exploration in hue combinations;
contrasts that are expressed through the juxtaposition of smooth layers and
textured marks, thick solid strokes and thin wobbly scratches, realism and
abstraction, the rules of design and the freedom of painting. Overall, itʼs a
visual story that speaks of intuitive balance.
The pursuit of an ever-evolving artistic voice, as well as personal and spiritual
growth are of utmost importance to her.
