Peter Wray & Judy Collins
In the Yard, Oil & Mixed-media on Board, 40 x 40cm
Within their collaborative practice, Peter Wray and Judy Collins bring to the work their own individual responses to a shared experience, engaging in a visual and verbal discourse between themselves and their painting – passing images back and forth and causing ideas to develop and change as a piece evolves. The observed characteristics of their subject matter; the surface qualities and colours absorbed from these unique locations.
And experiences and the combination of materials, media and process, become embodiments of memory and experience rather than images related to specific locations. The process of working is part of a search for a visual expression which extends far beyond mere appearance, but becomes a manifestation of the subliminal, essential qualities which are so much a part of the Penwith landscape.
