Di Oldfield

Until now much of my work could probably be described as being on the edge of figurative and abstract painting. 

However my artworks all have a starting point in a visual and personal experience: the colours of the sea and sky, views displaying almost mathematical formation and the grandeur of the natural world. 

A pictorial representation of these scenes was of little interest to me.  At times the outcome might be a recognisable view of a landscape or place, at other times it might be a set of organised forms, colours, surface textures that convey a response to a place.  The paintings are not abstract, nor are they landscape.  They use abstraction as a method and landscape experience as a source.
