ZEPHYR
Acrylic on stretched canva
60x90cm

Zephyr may refer to a light wind or west wind. For centuries, poets have eulogized Zephyrus, the Greek god of the west wind, and his "swete breeth". Zephyrus, the personified west wind, eventually evolved into zephyr, a word for a breeze that is westerly or gentle, or both. Today, zephyr is also the sobriquet of a lightweight fabric and the clothing that is made from it. More on Zephyr

"There is no pre-conceived vision. Maybe, on occasion, I may have a burning issue that I would like to address. But more often than not, I start blank. I stand in front of a pure, white canvas and it mirrors my state of mind. I let my subconscious take control and I let rip. Every daub of color, every layer finds a life of its own. The intricate network of lines and specks, and subliminal shapes leave the complex nooks and crannies of my mind and happily pick their spot on the canvas." Sheeba Khan
