Lorraine Simiana

Artist bio

Lorraine Simiana is a Sydney based artist with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in painting. Lorraine began as an abstract painter. Since 2016 Lorraine began to experiment with different mediums and techniques and came across a process called cymatics, the art and science of visualising sound. Whilst useful for analysing complex sounds, it makes for complex and beautiful patterns. This work challenges the notion of how we see sound. The involvement of music to create this work made the work more meaningful allowing her to express herself. Music has a way of timelining events in your life and making them personal to you. Lorraine has been a finalist in the Campbelltown Art Prize as well as performed live painting in "Plaza in Four Parts" a celebration of the Granny Smith Festival in Eastwood, an initiative of the City of Ryde . She was also a recipient of Artist in residence program at Blacktown Arts Centre in 2017 and again in 2018.

I create art because...

I am absolutely passionate about making art. I feel compelled to work daily on my craft and I am constantly experimenting with different techniques and mediums. It's all part of my process of growth.

I am different to most artists because...

The art I make is different to everything else out there. It's not really painting nor is it Sculpture. There's no real classification for it. Some of the work takes in energy by day and illuminates at night. My work is a play with light, it's illuminating, incandescent, fluid and beautiful!

When you look at my art, the thing I want you to feel is...

The thing I want most is for the viewer to resonate with the work and hopefully feel some emotion. I hope they see the beauty and are moved by it.

I believe art is an important part of our lives because...

The process of making art is healing. It's healing and almost meditative for those who choose to enjoy looking at it.

The thing I most want to say to non-artists is...

Everyone has that inner child that is creative but not everyone chooses to pursue that side of themselves. For those who do not, adorn your walls and spaces with art and enjoy the view.
