The artist favourite artists and music being Ludwig Beethoven, (Moonlight Sonata) George Frideric Handel (Sarabande-Duel) Erich Leinsdorf and Sergai Prokofiev (Dance of the Knights).
Love-Jenkins Love for Art developed since at the age of 20 where she had a carefree view of the world and her rebellious nature allowed her escapism through her Art. She would draw and illustrate the world in a distorted format. Here her interest in abstraction began. Love-Jenkins knew with abstraction she could play with images around and no one could really know what she was feeling, tell her what to do or create. It was hidden form of private expression for her. Through Art & classical Music she knew there was no boundaries and no restrictions. She could be as disobedient as she wanted. Some of her earlier drawings and illustrations have been lost and only some are stored in her London studio.
Her ultimate aim is to experiment freely and break boundaries in her art. Her work is Influenced by the study, observation and research into Classical Music, art & human emotions - the movements, energy and interaction we have with the objects around us. Mentally & physically.
“Creating beautiful objects of Art through the love & Power of classical music that your subconscious can connect to.’ -BALI
“Let the Music do the painting”- BALI
Art plays a major part in her life, even more so, while she paints with deep passion. Using mainly oils to create magical, timeless, fascinating & expressive art loved by all. Bali creates art that is emotional and tells a private story of her Life. That is a private emotion, that she fails to express in words, but only art & classical music. Bali would rather deny an emotion, if it gets too deep.
Love-Jenkins created this collection solely based on her love for classical music. It is a personal experience. It creates an emotion that the artist can feel without the use of spoken words. The high and low tones of the music pieces are dancing silently within our mind and souls. The bright blues and vivid reds used in the of the Symphony collection paintings express strong movements and dynamic emotion
