Edimburgo : Vivienne Edgar artantis art

About the Artist

I graduated from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art in 2003 with a BA (Hons) in Fine Art, Drawing and Painting. My degree led me to have a great interest in textural and 3D art. My interest in different materials and rock climbing added to my fascination with textural art. The constant scanning and searching for cracks in the rockface inspired me to illustrate this activity on canvas. I found paint alone did not allow me to express this and therefore began to use more and more different substances which already contain texture such as coffee and material.

I have developed a technique where curved and folded fabric is hardened enabling me to paint onto a flowing 3D surface. By using a variety of colours and textures to exaggerate natural shadow interesting images evolve. Viewers of my work always feel a need to touch my paintings as they don't believe that the surface is hard.

Several of my paintings express the hope and strength I find through my faith in God. By the use of colour, tone and texture I can illustrate many of the most difficult and happy times in my life.

My aim is allow the viewer to enjoy the colours, tones and texture of my paintings and to feel free to interpret them in the way they wish. Escape reality and reasoning and indulge your mind in expression and imagination.

Vivienne has taught a weekly art class at a Church of Scotland homeless hostel in Edinburgh from 2004 - 2007 which she found to be most rewarding. She has also done face-painting in garden centres and childrens's holiday clubs.

Vivienne's studio is located in Haymarket, Edinburgh.
