Angela Harding

The flora and fauna of the British countryside is the recurring inspiration for Angela's work. Her studio looks out over the Rutland landscape; the view is of sheep fields and English farmland, which are often represented in my work along with the theme of British birds. Colour is an inspiration for Angela's work, the soft green, greys and blues of the landscape or vibrant reds and oranges of autumn are a backdrop used in my paintings and prints. The work she produces is not a literal portrait but attempt to capture a distinct mood and atmosphere of animals, birds and landscape. The work has an allegorical aspect that has reference to British painting of the 30’s, 40’s and 50’s, especially the work of artists such as Eric Ravillious, David Jones and Winifred Nicolson, and as well as contemporary artists such as Mary Fedden and the Scottish colourists.
