DEC 7TH - JAN 21ST

BARBARA CRAIG

Barbara's work melds visual energy and emotive words to portray events, relationships, possessions that often combine security with an undercurrent of uncertainty. The body of work is eclectic; abstract snatches of happy recollections - bright and childlike, contrasting atmospheric expressive landscape studies which battle between the beauty seen (the paintings evolve from 'plein aire' work) and darker memories.

"My work is centered on emotional memories... I bring these thoughts to the studio and a reaction to the captured moment tumbles out onto the page in strong and lively brushstrokes and confident mark making. I want my logical brain to disengage and the act of painting to take over ... spontaneity and enthusiasm must be evident in the finished piece to engage, inspire and uplift the viewer in its colour and vitality."
