Using subtle shifts in tone a hue, Adriane Strampp‘s works conjure a familiar yet elusive memories of place, emotion and feeling. Her images are delicately and finely layered onto linen. When light falls at a certain angle, a glimpse of something tangible can appear, then leave without a trace. At other times roads, rivers, distant lights, smoke and other signs of life come into view through painted swathes of canvas that cast shadow or emanate light.
Adriane’s new body of work recalls her recent experiences of the moors and rugged coastline of Southern England where centuries of history are entombed in layers of landscape, like pentimento just visible through the surface.
