“Fire Dance” 50 x 50cm. How lovely to have some fun and create a painting that with such joyful freedom. I layered until I felt I must stop. This is a new departure for me to be more abstract but it will certainly not be my last as I enjoyed it so much. The only thing I have discovered is that I get very messy and would love a bigger space to work in! I am now working on another semi-abstract about a leap of faith. Ideas are forming in my head where the narrative is still present but perhaps the viewer needs to look a little harder.
About angela brittain
Each work I create has a search for “rightness” – an attempt to solve complex and often self-imposed compositional problems. They often have a tension below the surface. I work mainly in oil or acrylics on board. People fascinate me but I’m not sure that I made a conscious decision to make people central to my work or if this subject chose me. I have a Diploma in Art and Design and worked for several years as a graphic designer and illustrator before finally returning to my first love of drawing & painting in 2008. I have taught art to children and adults and currently offer one-to-one workshops from my home studio in West Sussex. I am a Member of the Society of Women Artists (SWA) and exhibit in London and the South.
