Lot 44 - Josie Clouting - Collecting Colours II
Acrylic on Paper
A6 (10X15CM) ORIGINAL ARTWORK
SIGNED ON VERSO
Josie immerses herself in the landscape, from man made cultivated botanic gardens to wild stormy beaches and the rolling hills where she lives. Her paintings are intuitive, emotional responses to her natural environment, inspired by the vastness and wonder of the natural world.
Josie’s works are saturated with colour, vitality and energy, reflecting her response to light, atmosphere and topography. Painting and sketching en plein air is a vital part of her practice, enabling her to react to the landscape and play with loose, immediate brush marks.
Experimenting with acrylics on a variety of surfaces and scales, with many large scale paintings as a result are part of the enjoyment of the creative process. Josie's physical movements creating large expansive works are an expression of the energy she feels within the landscape.
Josie graduated with a degree in Fine Art from Norwich University of the Arts in 2012. Her studio is now based in Maidenhead, Berkshire, UK. Recent shows include the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition 2020, Holly Bush Emerging Woman Painter Prize 2020 and the Sunday Times Watercolour Competition 2019.
