I’m exhibiting again at Warwickshire Open Studios 2017, with my new paintings, prints and cards of sea, sky and land. Any further exhibitions or art activities will be on the Artwork page of my website: www.mariecalvert.co.uk
For my 'day job' I am an Arts Psychotherapist, so am fascinated by the inner/outer creative process, and the interplay between control and freedom.
My art is evolving away from the literal and more towards the world of imaginative and richly textured paintings in acrylic, oil and mixed media. I use whatever is to hand to scratch, pour and splodge the paint around, to evoke my feeling of the place, and fleeting effects of weather, light and shadow. For me it is about play, and freedom, almost having a conversation with the paint and responding spontaneously. I am excited by the wildness and colours of the St.Ives coastline. Cornish artists e.g. Kurt Jackson, Neil Davies, Kerry Harding all inspire me and give me courage to keep experimenting.
