Work, Love, Rest

“Work, Love, Rest” is the last in my new series for 2022. I starting to think about the many repetitive jobs women do every week – the same T Shirt going through the wash again, the exercise class that cannot possibly have come round, the cooking we do because we want to give our families something wholesome and tasty and not reach for a packet. For many, squeezed in is work and attention to loved ones. Life is rich and busy but in there somewhere are a few hours to ourselves, to relax and indulge in a good book with a friend.

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.
