PRESS RELEASE

Highgate Contemporary Art

Teresa Lawton ‘Along the Roman Road’.

7 - 24 September 2011

Opening reception: Wednesday 7th September 2011

6.30 to 8.30pm

‘Moonstruck’

Teresa Lawton ‘Along the Roman Road’.

Mood driven abstracts of Dorsets wild, chalky landscapes and hidden past.

Teresa Lawton is acutely sensitive to her Dorset roots, and surroundings, both of which are

important components in her work.

A recent move from the desolate landscapes and untamed shores of the Isle of Purbeck to a

very different terrain has resulted in new freedoms and a different body of work of a more

structured and busy landscape, dissected by the Roman road, where skies merge with the land

and shadows fall across the fields.

Lawton is interested in exploring the simplification of form, space and colour. Her paintings

are not of’ the landscape so much as about’ the land and characterised by the sense of calm

and balance that comes of a deep rooted connection with nature. The resulting rich, polished

surfaces are clear indicators of Teresa’s love of her materials.

‘Forgotton Pots’

Marie Celine Bondue ‘Inspired Abstract’

Belgian artist Marie-Celine’s abstracts of cities and urban life offer the perfect foil. Her use

of natural pigments and her physical engagement with the paint, spreading colour with knives

and fingers, creates another kind of trace. What remains, after long meditation and

interventions is what matters the most.
