MA Fine Art

I chose ‘Beyond’ as the overarching title of this painting series as it reflects how I felt during lockdown, yearning to return to the outdoors, beyond the four walls of homes we were advised to stay inside. In this series, I aimed to paint natural landscapes with unnatural shapes and draw colour palettes from my beautiful surroundings in Wales.

I layered the paint to create depth and chose a square composition for each artwork to add to the abstraction of the landscapes. As society moves back to normality, I would like to think that people will have a greater appreciation of our world and take time to simply look.
