<strong>Annette</strong> <strong>Pugh</strong><br />

‘<strong>Bittersweet</strong>’<br />

All works for this exhibition explore moments of solace and solitude. The paintings consider landscape and our<br />

emotional connection to it. Each painting is the result of serendipitous discovery, of finding places that are silent and<br />

compelling in their intensity.<br />

Unnoticed and over-looked areas in parks, gardens and along the river’s edge are depicted with a dream like quality<br />

and heightened palette. These places, beg us to consider their beauty and emptiness, they are mindful and leave us<br />

with a sense of stillness tinged with an uncanny serenity.<br />

The works in the show relate strongly to ’Happenstance’ a commissioned exhibition of large scale works at<br />

The New Art Gallery Walsall. Similar locations, techniques and an exploration of mark making are evident in the<br />

smaller intimate studies and works on paper, whilst the mid-size and larger canvases offer rich sweet colour, fine<br />

detail and evocative sculptural elements such as the fountain and classical figures.<br />

The title <strong>Bittersweet</strong> comes from a larger painting in the Happenstance collection and provides us with the<br />

knowledge that these works are full of contrasting emotions, pleasure and sadness, reminding us that one cannot<br />

exist without the other and that these moments, captured by the artist are both rare and special.
