Jon Wright interviews Lois Cordelia, BBC Radio Suffolk, 11 Sep 2016
Jon Wright (BBC Radio Suffolk) recently interviewed local Ipswich artist Lois Cordelia about the inspirations and motivations behind her creative art processes.
Jon caught up with Lois while she was performing a live art demonstration of her dramatic speed-painting (using acrylics), which will be viewable in the form of a timelapse video when the interview is broadcast on Jon's early Sunday morning show on 11th September 2016 (06:00 - 09:00). Tune in on 95.5 FM, 104.6 FM, Digital Radio, or online: http://www.bbc.co.uk/radiosuffolk ("Listen Live"). It will also be available on "Listen Again" later.
Lois describes to Jon her reasoning behind some unusual aspects of her creative work, including her startling technique of painting over existing imagery and thereby creatively reimagining a canvas, to evoke a visual metamorphosis. Jon captures this process live in action via the medium of timelapse, filming Lois painting a view of the interior of St Mary le Tower Church, Ipswich, over a surprising choice of canvas covered in boldly patterned Moroccan bowls.
Lois also talks about the spiritual influences in her work, her journey through many different spiritual traditions, and particularly her love of church architecture.
