Temptation

A new painting in a semi-abstract expressionist style. The subject of Temptation came to me as a result of thinking about the way life can change in an instant if we take one path instead of another. Going to the biscuit tin and then feeling cross because we want to be thinner, backing out of a gateway and not seeing a low wall, opting for plastic surgery because we think if we look younger people will treat us differently. The subject of Adam & Eve then seemed the logical place to start with this composition. Acrylic on canvas. 51 x 40cm.

A new version of Adam & Eve

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.
