INSPIRATION

Clearly influenced by the work and colour of Gauguin, Matisse and Rousseau, Oenone has been able to create her own distinctive style with a hint of the surreal, and found a way to express her feelings about nature and wildlife. Paths and the choices we face when confronted with those pathways feature heavily in her recent work. The question of choice, whether to choose to take the path that leads to saving wildlife and nature, or to choose another way, is presented allegorically. The animals in these paintings act as guides and stand like sentinels at the gateways.
