59 x 84 cm. Acrylic on canvas. Following on from my semi-abstract painting called ‘Fire dance”, this painting is about the leap of faith we have to make in order to move out of our comfort zone and try something new. Whether that move is a change for the better or just a temporary departure, I will let you know as this is exactly what I am trying to achieve by moving my work into a more expressive and less realistic direction. One thing I do know, it was a very refreshing use of brush, sponge, fingers in fact anything that was messy- layer after layer.
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.
