June Higgins

As a painter and sculptor, I work intuitively - not knowing what the end result will be. To begin, I choose materials I want to try together or colours I want to use, and then just keep seeing what else the artwork needs.

My acrylic paintings are about line, shape, colour and movement. They infer an environment where anything is possible, slightly creepy but drawing the viewer in at the same time.

My sculptures and installations reflect my love of the home and nostalgia. They are made from craft and hardware supplies, art project leftovers, and found objects –materials that are close at hand and easily handled. Often, the sculptures are components that balance or rest against each other, connected together in an impermanent, tentative fashion. This reflects the same idea of “anything can happen” that is also expressed in my paintings.
