Amy Olds is a London-based artist; she likes to think of her painting process as falling in to two phases.


She begins with a loose, gestural, expressionistic phase, where she’s allowing chance and accidents to occur, and allowing the painting to evolve.


The second phase is more considered and involves making compositional choices.


At this point she encloses the shapes within blocks of colour and pattern that seem to form the background but are actually in the foreground.


What she’s trying to achieve is a painting that combines fast movement with slow, contemplative breathing space.
