The CHRISTMAS Exhibition 2022: Saturday 26th November - 28th January 2023

Margaret Overton

Recent paintings celebrate flowers and the juxtaposition of patterns. They are images which accentuate a rich variety of colour in order to create decorative qualities using direct observational study of still life composition. In some senses they are a blending of the abstract with the figurative in order to create a balanced picture which hopefully delights the eye.

Margaret loves the sense of light and space created by the rich and varied woodland landscapes and bluebells in Spring – which she finds spectacular. She has frequently explored this magical landscape theme throughout the year – charting the changing colours and light effects in all their richness and variety through the seasons.
