Framework Herefordshire is a support network for emerging artists who live, study or work in the county. Many are graduates of Hereford College of Arts and welcome to ongoing support of other artists as they make their way into a career in the arts.
'Branching Out' hints at early explorations of new directions and new media.
Angela Holden is showing her collection of vibrant acrylic paintings inspired by Salcombe Boatyard. Angela graduated in Fine Art in 2016 and writes:
"I use the transformative and seductive qualities of paint to make bold, expressive paintings, using abstract forms to create a simple, non-didactic language.
Through exploring colour relationships and formal elements I question visual perceptions, and by embracing the intuitive, my paintings evolve from initial idea with the final destination unknown. With the making of the work helping form the subject itself, my practice becomes a unique journey of process, referencing both Process art and Abstract Expressionist colour-field painting.
I believe my paintings are a visual echo of my desire for organisation, using simple structures along with colour to create visual juxtaposition."
