|Val Tierney speaks about her work:
environments are inspirational to my work, resulting in
representational and abstracted images in a variety of media. Natures
colours and forms intrigue and inspire me. I am drawn to the spiritual
aspects of 'special places' where ever changing landscapes and organic
forms depict the moods of nature and light.
One of a series of commissioned works based upon Shakespeare's 'The Tempest'.
Medium - Acrylic and Mixed Media.
||My work continues to be my
emotional memories of landscape and place, originally expressed in
paint/printmaking and latterly in hand dyed silk fibre and felt. Recent
works are based on the mood evoked by a landscape rather than a search
for realism and are produced instinctively with the medium taking over
after a certain point. Not literally representational but not always
unrelated. The shapes of nature and organic forms are blended with
expressive textures and colour, working pattern over pattern using
different transparencies of dyes and metallic foils producing an image
that evokes the mood of the original subject.
