Lottie Braun: Statement
"Presentiment, a feeling which haunts. World of uncanny signs. A secret language shared with the spirits of trees, sea, wind, and animals. The supernatural presence in things. The shock of waking to other realities— same world, new eyes. A language that speaks of what is other". - El cenote / The Dreampool Gloria Anzaldua
As she grapples with her cultural identity as neither fully Australian or fully Papuan, Lottie searches for home through layers of paint and clay, intuitively building up and taking away until her own full yet intangible world appears. She paints to create landscapes that call to find peace in the feeling of being lost and is an ode to the undying hope we all have in our individual journeys to belonging and feeling whole.
