Noʻonoʻo ʻo Natasha Pike i nā paepae metaphysical o ka pena.

Natasha Pike, Ke hana nei mākou i kahi ʻāina kūpono ʻole, 2020-21, acrylic ma luna o ka moku a me nā makau lole; kiʻi ʻia e Dara McGrath, mahalo ʻia e ka mea pena kiʻi a me Clonakilty Arts Center. Natasha Pike, Ke hana nei mākou i kahi ʻāina kūpono ʻole, 2020-21, acrylic ma luna o ka moku a me nā makau lole; kiʻi ʻia e Dara McGrath, mahalo ʻia e ka mea pena kiʻi a me Clonakilty Arts Center.

Akā ke noho pū mākou, pili… hoʻoheheʻe mākou i kekahi me nā ʻōlelo. Ua uhi ʻia mākou me ka noe. Hana mākou i kahi ʻāina kumu ʻole.¹ - Woloka Virginia

Hoʻomaʻamaʻa kiʻi pinepine Ke noho nei au ma ʻaneʻi, ke manaʻo nei au, e hana ana i kahi ʻāina kumu ʻole, nā mea e noho kokoke ana i nā mea ʻē aʻe, e hōʻuluʻulu ana i kahi ʻano e hoʻopuka i kahi alapine o ka hoʻololi ʻana i ka ʻike. Manaʻo wau e pili ana i ka ʻōlelo pena e waiho ʻia ma ʻaneʻi, ma ke ʻano he ʻōnaehana paʻakikī o ka hana ʻike. ʻO ka 'hale' o ka pena pena, nā papa o nā mea a me ke kākoʻo, e koi mai iaʻu e noʻonoʻo i ke kino o ia mea, a me ke ʻano o kēia mea e hāʻawi ai iā ia iho. ʻO ka noʻonoʻo ʻana i ke kiʻi ʻana ma ke ʻano he mea paʻa loa he mea ʻino; ʻaʻole maopopo i kona ʻano. 

Hana mua wau i nā kiʻi pena abstract a me nā mea ʻekolu-dimensional e ʻike ʻia ana e kani ana i nā ʻano ʻokoʻa o ka ʻili pena. Hoʻoulu au i ka noʻonoʻo e pili ana i kahi kala o ka waihoʻoluʻu, ka lepo a i ʻole ke ʻano o ka pena ma ka ʻili, ke kaumaha o kekahi mea a i ʻole ke ʻano hou. Ke hoʻāʻo nei au e hoʻolei i ka pena e haki i nā palena o kāna mokulele kiʻi ʻelua ʻāpana, e ʻimi ana i waho mai ʻaneʻi e hana i nā mea kiʻi kiʻi e puka ana mai kahi 'wahi pena'. I loko o kēia kaʻina hana, hiki mai kahi paheʻe e hāʻawi iaʻu i kahi kūlana e nīnau maikaʻi ai i ka paʻa ʻana o ka mea a hāʻawi i kāna ʻike. ʻIke wau i ka mea i hoʻopuka ʻia mai ka mea, a ma ia manawa e kikoo aku ai i waho, a hiki i nā ʻano aʻoaʻo ʻē aʻe e hāpai i kāna ʻike, i kēia manawa, aia ma ka paepae o nā mea a mākou e ʻike ai a hiki i nā mea a mākou e hana ʻole ai.

ʻO ka mea kālaiʻike ʻAmelika, ʻo WJT Mitchell, ʻōlelo ʻia: “ʻO nā mea ke ʻano o ke ʻano o nā mea i kahi kumuhana - ʻo ia hoʻi, me ka inoa, kahi ʻike, kahi gestalt, a i ʻole stereotypical template… Nā mea, ma kekahi ʻaoʻao, ... [hōʻailona] ka manawa lilo ka mea i 'ē aʻe…”.² He manawa pōkole ke ʻike ʻia kahi mea ʻē aʻe a olaola. ʻO kahi kiʻi pena kiʻi paʻa i kēia manawa i loko o koʻu manaʻo; kono ia iā ʻoe i loko o kona wahi pili, i loko o kona ʻaoʻao kūkulu, i paʻa i ka hana hōʻike. Hoʻopili nā mea i waho. Hoʻokomo lākou i ko lākou mau ʻano ma ke ʻano he kūlana no ke kamaʻilio ʻana me lākou. Ke hana nei au ma waena o kēia mau palena, hoʻohana wau i nā mea haʻahaʻa, sima, kāwele maka, pālolo, pena a me nā huaʻōlelo i kākau ʻia e hana ai i nā hālāwai abstract aʻu e hōʻike nei. E noi, e noi i pili i, i ike ole i ka lehulehu. Ke hoʻāʻo nei au e noʻonoʻo i nā mea ma o nā lens like ʻole - ka pilikanaka, ka ʻuhane, ke kino, a malia paha.

Ma hope o ke aʻo ʻana a me ka noho ʻana i nā ʻāina ʻē, ua hoʻohana au i kekahi mau makahiki koʻikoʻi e hana ana ma Berlin ma mua o ka hele ʻana i ka papahana a ka Haku ma Art and Process ma ke Kulanui o Art and Design MTU Crawford ma Cork. No ka hōʻike hope loa a me kahi hōʻike hoʻokahi ma Lismore Castle Arts 'St Carthage Hall i Nowemapa 2020, ua hōʻike au i nā hui o nā kiʻi pena a me nā mea e ʻimi ana i nā manaʻo e pili ana i ka pili ʻana i nā mea a me nā pilina ma waena o nā mana kanaka a me nā mea ʻole. I kēia mau lā, ua hōʻaiʻē au i ka inoa 'Tropisms' mai kahi puke hoʻokolohua na Nathalie Sarraute, no kahi ʻano hana i hōʻike ʻia ma Clonakilty Arts Center i Kepakemapa 2021. Ua lawe ʻia au me ka hoʻohana ʻana o Sarraute i nā huaʻōlelo a me nā mea ʻike ʻole ma ke ʻano he 'containers' e wehewehe i ka naʻau. hana. Ua hoʻoikaika pū ʻia au e ka manaʻo o Timothy Morten no Hyperobjects,³ e hoʻomaka ana e hana i ke ʻano o nā 'mea pena i hoʻohui ʻia', e ʻimi hou ana i nā manaʻo e pili ana i ka noiʻi naʻau.

Mahalo nui wau i ka Arts Council's Visual Arts Bursary, e ʻae ana iaʻu i kahi manawa koʻikoʻi o ka noiʻi a me ka hui pū ʻana, e hoʻopau ana i ka hana ʻana i ka puke a kahi mea pena. E kono au i nā haʻawina mai nā poʻe ma nā kula e like me ka physics, architecture, language study and anthropology e noiʻi pehea kā lākou ʻimi ʻimi waiwai, me ka hoʻomaʻamaʻa noʻeau, e noʻonoʻo ai i kahi papa inoa o ka ʻike. Mai ʻaneʻi, manaʻo wau e ulu aʻe nā manaʻo hou no kahi PhD alakaʻi alakaʻi aʻu e makemake ai e hana i nā makahiki e hiki mai ana. Ke hana pū nei au me nā peripheries MEET i kēia makahiki, kahi papahana leka i hoʻopau ʻia ma kahi hōʻike hui ma Periphery Space ma Gorey School of Art, Wexford, i Iune.

He mea pena kiʻi ʻo Natasha Pike e hana ana ma waena o Cork a me West Cork. He lālā ʻo ia o Backwater Artist Group a me Network.
