Angela Lawrence, artist in oil & watercolour

 

 

Angela Lawrence paints expressive landscape and seascape paintings in oil and watercolour . A selection of paintings in her most representational style are found in the l"landscape" section of the “view paintings” link, while looser approaches to specific landscapes, as well as glimpses and impressions are  in the "semi-abstract landscape" section. Abstract work inspired by the elements that make up the landscape around us: rock, water, organic materials and colour, have their own section.

 Some of the  paintings relate to the many years she lived in Finland; to the vast landscape of lakes and forests and the extreme seasons; but most of the artwork has been created since moving to the Dumfries and Galloway region of Scotland in 2004. The contemporary style conjures up the effects of changing light on landscape and a beckoning towards the distance in the hills. The "big skies" of Galloway have become a more prominent feature of many of her works, but also, contrastingly in the seascapes, the rocks and tidelines along the Solway coast are a focus. 

Angela lives near Kirkcudbright, "Artists' Town",  and gathers inspiration from the beautiful coastal scenery of the Solway and Colvend coast, and  the nearby Galloway hills . The mountain scenery of the Western Highlands and the west coast of Scotland is also a subject which Angela likes to portray. Light, and the unspoiled qualities of nature in Scotland stimulate her work and ideas.  Some themes in the more abstract work are recurring. One series of work focuses on the sea in close up, and  was initially created for the "Sea Spirits" exhibition at Gracefield Arts Centre, Dumfries. Angela  received a Visual Arts Award from Creative Scotland and D& G Arts to develop the work further in the Outer Hebrides. Her newest theme, based on a painting called "Marshland" painted in about 1999, is about "Reflections", which encourages a free and abstract approach in her oil painting which she enjoys.
 

The Clience Studio was  established and situated in "artists town" Kirkcudbright,  in 2005.  Since July 2007, however, the new Clience Studio  gallery in the nearby town centre of Castle Douglas is where the majority of her work can be seen, and Angela now has her studio alongside this. The gallery shows large and changing display of her paintings and also a high quality, limited selection, of prints and art gifts based on her work, such as placemats and coasters, calendars and greetings cards.The gallery is open throughout the year and it is also possible to contact and order original artwork, prints or art gifts to be sent by post.  Angela  also exhibits around the country at many excellent venues, and details of these can be found on the exhibitions page. Commission requests are welcomed and considered; quotations are given in line with similar size and style recent paintings in the gallery.
