“My art is a reflection of cause and effect.

My motivation is to be a creator of reactions.
I am a conduit to the innovative and to the emotional.
I intuitively connect to the reaction, observing the fleeting and ephemeral metamorphosis.
I am the conductor,
the performer,
the instrumentalist,
the creator of something living and dying
flourishing and fading – capturing moments of splendour for eternity.”

 

 

Derryn's Art Making Process

My practice is based on alchemy & art. My interest lies in the discovery & the orchestration of reactions between mediums.

With this technique, I use varying size vessels, liquids of differing consistencies & densities, & a reacting agent, which causes the bonds of the molecules of the liquids to break, separate & disperse.

The fact that this form of artwork is ephemeral is reflective of life itself. From our very own beings, to technology, to climate change – ever changing & transient.

We rely on recordings & archives for memory & history.

Through video & photography, I capture moments in time to be recorded, while the original artwork has long completed its lifespan.
