Petra Ingham Artist
Contemporary Visual Artist
As a Contemporary Visual artist my work focuses on the relationship between art, poetry and sound. Words and sounds are powerful and it is that emotional response stirred up and brought to the surface of our being, that I am trying to capture and translate visually.
Certain songs stir up old memories and evoke within me a strong physical reaction. Listening to differing genres of music and poetry, immersing myself in the sounds of nature; allows me to respond in a spontaneous and intuitive way, allowing me to portray visibly what is in part captured spiritually and emotionally.
