They say there is a strong link between women and the moon. The symbolism of the moon can mean so many different things to different people. This work reminds me of infinity with no end or beginning and celebrates the purest form of simplicity, the circle. The flow of energy is enhanced by only using curved lines in the design. The monochromatic colour palette in a soft natural colour creates a sense of calmness and serenity.
Sureen Gouws is a South African-born abstract artist living on the Mornington Peninsula near Melbourne. After working as an architect for over a decade, Sureen migrated to Australia in 2018 with her husband and young daughters, simultaneously starting a career in art.’
Sureen approaches her art more as wall sculptures than paintings due to the main influence of her architectural design background. Her monochromatic wall reliefs explore the unique three-dimensional shapes created by layering circular geometries and the inherent energy they embody. In her work circles are symbols representing totality, wholeness, flowing energy and timelessness.
She also examines the interplay between light and shadow, and how it influences the perception of her works. By only using a single colour, the emphasis falls on the shadows created by the different shapes and their compositions. The artwork’s response to the changing light in its environment offers the viewer a unique perspective every time.
Sureen’s works are constructed from layers of timber and hand-painted with textural paint. It is finished in subtle neutral colours that give the works a soft tactile and warm minimalistic character. The beauty lies in the balance between the clean lines of the wood and the uneven hand paint textures. It gives each artwork a soul of its own.
