I come from a background of printmaking , sculpture and ceramics from studying at Cheltenham, but painting has been my passion for many years now.
At the ‘Open Studios Event ‘ this year , I will be exhibiting paintings of the local countryside and urban scenes of Worcestershire. I paint at different times of the day and weather ,using new techniques and colour to show movement and atmosphere. Evening and morning light are of a particular interest as it adds drama and a different focus to a familiar scene. I use palette knives to apply thick paint to the canvas and paint quickly sometimes vigorously ,to create light , tones and expression. I try to pause, step back whilst painting a larger piece to allow reflection and stop me from over painting .My work is a balance between the real and the abstraction, I like to connect the viewer to a place or dream like vision . A feeling or a memory.
My work is exhibited in local galleries and available through my website .carolinehallartprints.co.uk
My studio is outside in the garden, toilet is available. Please be aware that access to my studio is up two steps.
My paintings will be available to purchase in different sizes as will a selection of limited prints during this summer event. I look forward to welcoming you to my garden studio , come and chat, have a drink and see some colour!
