Freda Davies – ‘Open Spaces’
My paintings pursue an interest in our experience of landscape. I do not wish to create direct representations of nature, rather, images that suggest the human emotions that nature can evoke.
These abstract works are dependant upon both observational drawings of the landscape and intuitive responses to stillness, beauty and innocence.
It is my hope that all the formal qualities of the work, any expressive brushwork or layering, the choice of scale or decorative qualities, all work towards the communication of this subject.
