Veda Hallowes

veda-hallowesHallowes’s practice reflects on beauty, growth, and a greater understanding of life’s mysteries as the bedrock of her work. She expects viewers to take from it whatever they like, either to smile and move on or to relate to the profound ‘other meanings’ which are explicit or implicit in the work, and to engage the imagination and become co-creator, delighting in the impossible and fantastical.

The Fruit Series

In her own words, "I used to make figurative work, but by the late 90's decided that I no longer wished to express myself in this way. I therefore, embarked on a series of fruits which expressed the essence of the female figure whilst actually only alluding to it. This gave me ample scope to explore various fruits and extract their essence of fertility, beauty and originality. I love the taut smooth surfaces, and try to replicate that in my work. The work is very colour dependent, and it took many years of exploration to arrive at these beautiful and unusual surfaces."
