‘A TEXTURED LANDSCAPE’
A solo exhibition by Tamara Williams
22nd November – 29th January
I originally studied Graphic Design at Kingston and spent 30 years running my own design agency in London, before revisiting the printmaking and painting I so loved at art college; experimenting with different textures and mark-making by working directly onto plaster, wood and natural materials.
My design background informs and influences all of my work, from a love of composition and visual space, to the energy and freedom of abstract line work.
Ideas are inspired by the natural world and start with drawing, using a variety of line weights, with the negative space as much a feature as the positive. The landscape around my studio near The Thames is an especially strong influence with the river bank and surrounding fields filled with their tangle of wild flowers and graphic shapes which I deconstruct into abstracted layers of texture represented in my latest work. The colours change through each season and are inspirational in so many ways.
Further afield, the texture, form and colour of the Cornwall and Norfolk coastlines are also interpreted through some of my mixed media pieces with the little works on plaster creating a more 3-d effect. More recently I have printed a limited edition of wearable art onto silk and cashmere.
