Artist Yvonne Coleman-Burney Philosophy Photography- To me it is freezing a moment in time that will never be captured again. A life saving moment, it’s a subtle magical force that is born from trusting your intuition enough to act upon it. It’s a vision not seen as clearly with the naked eye but with God’s grace the lens brings life, possibilities and promise that instantly becomes transformed into whatever creativity your soul possess. Painting- My paintings are nothing more than abstract art, both tangible and mysterious; abstract contains the elements of our spirituality. My work has been described as having a high sense of energy, color and boldness. I belief it merely expresses my inner thoughts and sub-conscious emotions. Although the outcome of my paintings are usually from a personal attribute, my desire is to sustain a dialogue with my audience thru the painting. By capturing a mood or emotional passage I hope that my work will move the viewer in some way that is meaningful.
