This new painting “Reflections at the Bar” is another semi-abstract acrylic on canvas 61 x 45 cm. It is on the theme of what happens to all the images that a mirror sees during the course of a ballet practise, like “Warming up”, It is in a more abstract style than some of my other paintings whilst having elements of the more structured works.
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.
