ISABELLA MACLURE

Inspiration for my paintings has come about as a result of my experience scuba diving and walking coastal paths around Britain. I have been intrigued by the stout harbour walls that defy the ferocity of the sea and the weather-scraped, eroded wood of the harbour buildings and boats, the rocks, cliffs and the ever changing sea. Knowing what magic lies hidden deep beneath the waves has instilled a great love of the sea and of returning to the solidity and safe haven of dry land.

 

I use a variety of techniques in the creation of my painting. I tend to work on more than one painting at a time with initial development being based on collage and mark making techniques. Layers of tissue paper, oil pastel, printed images and ink are used to create depth and interest. I scrape and sand back surfaces to reveal hidden fragments. Like the land and sea, my paintings hide what lies beneath.
