Ruth’s work in oils and on canvas are most often a response to the East Suffolk landscape, and are either energetic and textured, or worked into smooth flowing abstract forms.

Her watercolours arise from similar inspiration and are worked in translucent layers of pure watercolour on hand made paper.

With over 30 pieces in the show at Burnham Grapevine Contemporary Arts, there are a range of unusual pieces, coming out of different landscapes such as North Wales, and sometimes, a result of her love of the creatures of the Suffolk landscape.

An introduction to mixed media from Valerie:

I am going to begin work on a series of starts, taking them as far as feels right. To begin I am planning to create a stash of coloured and textured papers ready to tear and to cut up for the collage elements of my work. I shall also be working on background beginnings using gesso, moulding paste, collage texts, textures, and playful markmaking. At this stage it is all play and anything can happen and emerge. It is a matter of shutting off the structured logical brain and looking for the child within.

I dream of sacred places

Valerie Armstrong on her new series of mixed media paintings:

My latest, more abstract work explores the intangibility and ephemeral nature of the mysterious world we enter when in sleep… I always paint with music as my muse, combining collage, words and textures, obscuring then working back, so barely visible traces can be glimpsed through layers of transparent glaze.
