ROSEMARY BRIDGLAND COLBRIDGE
PAINTER AND COLOURIST
Colour is the constant thread that runs through my artistic practices even though stylistically I work in different ways.
Abstracts derived from nature form the touchstone for my examination of pure colour in a freer style. This has led me onto an interest in fragmentation whereby with the juxtaposition of colour and line I hope to confuse the eye to make the resultant image resonate and sing.
My interest in 20th century artists has led me to experiment occasionally with the practice of appropriation, especially with the works of Turner and Piper.
I am also trying to convert my colourist’s synaesthesia by painting abstracts from the colours, shapes and moves I see when thinking of the names of Latin American dances.
