The Power of Synergy Exhibition of Photographic Works by Paulette McKoy at Red Gate Gallery

“In life we experience many and varied relationships; people come into our lives for a reason, a season or a lifetime”(Paulette McKoy 2010)

One of the deepest desires of any normal human being is to be harmonised, and unified with others, as brother, sister, husband, wife, father, mother, neighbour, colleague, or friend. It is this unity that creates synergetic energy, which underpins powerful, invigorating relationships, be they marriages, families, teams, communities, alliances, and nations.

In her first solo exhibition entitled ‘The Power of Synergy’. Paulette McKoy captivates the changing moods and feelings that we as humans experience in relationships, through her subconscious creating a series of abstract paintings, expressed by vibrant yet soothing subtle lines and brush strokes, drawn from her spirit and mixed with the external sources surrounding her. McKoy’s aim is to generate a spiritual connection with the viewer transmitting joy, peace and tranquillity.

Paulette McKoy grew up in Manchester and now lives in London. During the late 90’s, She enrolled on a BTEC Arts Foundation where throughout the course, the Fine Art Lecturer at the college became increasingly impressed in her use of colour and her delicate brush strokes and tried to encourage the artist to continue her studies in Fine Art, however Paulette McKoy was determined to pursue a career in the fashion industry and went on to study at University. She then returned to the arts in 2001 and truly appreciated rediscovering her love and passion for painting, which gives her completeness and fulfilment. Paulette McKoy has been told that her work has touched people’s hearts and minds, with her selection of warm fluid colours, vibrant yet soothing subtle lines. McKoy’s work has been exhibited locally in South East London and regularly exhibited at art fairs around the country.
