About the artist
Abstract and abstract realism mixed media paintings inspired by nature, landscape, seascape and inner process.
Polly creates abstract realism paintings which are inspired by her environment. She expresses her emotional response to a time and place, as well as the particular energy of the weather and the light. Polly endeavours to capture the essence and the sense of a place, rather than a realistic representation.
Initially, Polly works outside in the landscape and creates sketches and written notes. She focuses on the light, surrounding sounds and the energy of the space.
The sketches are then revisited and worked into larger paintings in her studio.
Polly's purely abstract work reflects her internal landscape and response to music, poetry and sounds. She works with a variety of materials intuitively with a focus on process. Initially, no conscious thought is given as she adds layers of paint or other materials. She will reach a point where the work ‘feels’ right and she begins the process of refinement with much more conscious cognition.
Polly’s work is held in private collections throughout the UK, Europe, Australia and USA.
