Heather Duncan's paintings are powerful abstract impressions of the landscapes that move her deeply.
The colour vibrates as brightly as stained glass, transforming the raw and bleak landscapes Duncan favours into luminous and uplifting images dense with texture. As critic John Fineran has commented, this is “painting as process, in all its affecting poetry, tactility and unpredictability. The painting as subject – not painting of a subject.”
Duncan's layered canvases express a deep connection with the landforms of Yorkshire, the Pacific NW and other places with special meaning for her. Working from a studio at home, her work was exhibited first at the Tregoning gallery and lately in Artwave West and other venues including the Belgravia, London. The paintings are widely collected by private buyers in the UK, Germany and the US. Recognised in regional and national media coverage, her painting style continues to develop in exciting new directions.
Duncan says: “I aim to find and depict the hidden drama and poetry of those landscapes that resonate with me, those places that have a hold on me. My paintings turn these ordinary places into something more magical, through painting from memory, with emphasis on emotion and experience.”
