Glass reflections

£638.00

I really like to show items from an unusual perspective, often looking down to make the objects seem unfamiliar to the viewer, but also to emphasise key qualities. In ‘Glass reflections’ I placed glass jugs and glasses on a mirrored surface to create eye catching patterns. The nectarines were added to contrast with the cool blues and greens of the glass and draw the spectator’s eye around the canvas.

This is painted on stretched canvas that is first sanded and primed with gesso. Framed in a white , neutral surround.

This painting is also available as a giclee print.

I am lucky enough to live and be brought up very close to the Derbyshire countryside., in the United Kingdom. I like to think that the beautiful colours found in nature are reflected in my paintings and I often find inspiration from the strong shapes of flowers. I particularly admire the work of Georgia O'Keefe and I too use a detailed approach and I find the close up cropping and the unusual viewpoint combines a realistic and abstract approach to my work. I initially started out painting still lifes, but I wanted to grab the viewers' attention and offer a different take on this traditional genre. Once I started painting glass objects I loved the way the colours, usually from a floral subject were picked up in the glass and would resonate throughout the canvas and create unusual and intriguing patterns. I started to think how else I could adapt these techniques which has led me to paint my 'Reflections in water' range. Some of my designs in this range are inspired by my visit to the Conservatory at the Pavillion gardens in Buxton, Derbyshire or nearby Aquariums, where the light from a skylight and running water added to the movement on the surface.
