Angela J Kennedy
(54 years old. Born in United Kingdom. Lives in: Newcastle upon Tyne)
Leeds Met University

These six oil paintings are part of a body of work attempting to make connections between the use of improvisation as a device to make movement and dance, and the exploration of that inner process through mark making, gesture and colour. These paintings are manifestation of these investigations. I have been working as an Independent Dance Artist since 1986 when I graduated from Middlesex University with a degree in Performance Art. I now work as a multi-disciplinary artist and as well as painting my practice includes sculpture, installation, performance and site specific work.

Work of art I would like to make

I would make a large work, possibly 5-10 metres long by 1-2 metres high or a series of canvases so as to develop further my floor and wall painting.
I am interested in exploring my own inner dialogue while making the painting – which is a very physical process and then finding ways to engage others in that process through their responses to the work.
I would make a work which you could walk alongside and have an interaction with, a conversation with the work about the vocabulary in it; I am curious about peoples responses on a visceral level.
How we record peoples responses would be an important element of the curation.
I believe the world in 25 years time will still be about us as physical beings responding to our circumstances and our experiences; then using that understanding to decide how to live our lives and become ourselves.
