MARIA HATLING IS A PAINTER AND TEXTILE ARTIST BASED IN LONDON.
‘I believe colour communicates emotion, creates mood and speaks directly to the soul.’
My current body of work is informed by the way we as human beings relate and interact with each other. My paintings are mostly abstract but if you look closely you might spot characters interacting within the frame, that’s if you choose to. I am interested in striking a balance between free expression of colours and brush strokes fuelled by human emotion and finding a moment of stillness. This is what I try to achieve within my work.
