Penny Hart-Davies, "Dappled haze of the cleaning", watercolour, gouache, pastel and fine liner on paper, 2019, 42 x 59 x 1cm. Part of 'Meadowland' collection, '‘Dappled Haze of the Clearing’, depicts meadows and canopies of trees within the South Downs National Park in Southern England, where patterns form through the shade of trees. Organic forms highlighted with fine liner, and bursts of blue and red, represent hidden fauna, against a backdrop of subtle earthy textures. This work is presented sealed with varnish on a wooden cradle (to avoid the need or glass) and presented in a floating frame. UK shipping £35. Though a landscape artist, working in mixed media, I rarely use specific scenes. I plan my starting point, but the actual brush strokes or scraping, take me on an intuitive journey with intent taking over when I stop to ponder. My source materials are my photographs or collected natural materials, from daily walks, but also draw on archived recycled non-art mediums.Young people found their own sanctuary in woodland, creating wooden teepee-like shelters and activity structures with recycled parts, to return to and also used and adapted by others. I came across some of these in construction, in use, and then empty and later weathered, conjuring up their journeys to this point, but also how the project will follow this narrative. I've used acrylic paint, not only for its textural qualities, but as a symbol of the human element and collected earth materials to represent the significant part nature played. The heightened colours are indicative of entering an altered state when at play, symbolic of a fantasyland, against various narratives of life at home. Penny is preoccupied by the energy around the Sussex coast and downland, where she's lived and worked for many years. Her interest in the power of the land, came about through personal transformation.After her art degree from University of Reading, her practice became a form of therapy for mental health issues at the time , forming a catalyst to adapt working in colourful organic forms that fed her soul. Later, as an art lecturer and community artist, her mission was to pass on the benefits of art for wellbeing. Working with local communities on environmental art projects, she forged a personal pathway to working in harmony with nature, creating pigments and using plant fibres with conventional artists paints. Today, Penny support other local artists; shows, exchanges ideas with the many like-minded artists met through social media and, from the early 2000s has taken an active collaborative role, including in Hanover Art Trail and Down to Earth Collective governance, both in Brighton, until the pandemic and is now a member of Steyning Arts, having moved out of Brighton to rural Sussex.
