Artist Hazel Saville
In July 2011 the purpose built Golden Hill Art Gallery opened it’s doors to display the artwork of Hazel Saville at the Golden Hill Centre, near Carmarthen in Wales, UK.
My work epitomises my passion for colour and light. I feel a major part of my life purpose is to bring colour and light to the world. My artwork reflects the light, love and the joy of my soul in colour. Each painting expresses a movement towards joy.
I enjoy making forms and shapes not previously brought into being. I have also painted many landscapes, although now my work leans more towards the abstract.
Paintings are created through the medium of artist quality acrylics, or oils, using the beautiful pigments modern paint production provides. They are often built up with many layers of colour, giving a rich, textured effect. I love to create new forms inspired by the beauty of nature. I feel like my close rapport with the unconscious mind/Creative Source can be seen reflected in my artwork.
In my previous career, I worked for 10 years as a social worker, in London, Neath and Swansea. I have worked as a hypnotherapist, healer and workshop leader since 2000.
Over the last few years I have majored in art and left most of the therapy work to my husband Peter, who is also an accredited therapist.
This is what an eloquent admirer of my work wrote:
“We are all on a journey in life… just as light takes time to travel to create life, so we all travel on a journey to find that light… a light that transforms our banal world into a rich tapestry of colour, which vibrates with the richness of life, sings with harmonies and beats with a pulse of joy in a world which would otherwise be dull with monotony. In her art Hazel vibrates the culmination of that journey in a riotous celebration of colour.”
I am also a harpist, songwriter, poet and gardener.
