Shape and Space is a collection of still life paintings that focus on contemporary ceramic forms, the rendering of their shapes, and the stillness of the spaces that surround them.
"My still life oil paintings reflect my search for space and stillness. The flowers and objects I paint are collected from my daily surroundings; some from our garden, others gifted or collected during sanctioned raids on the gardens of friends, or from my selection of op shop finds and contemporary handmade ceramics. This year I have returned to working with clay and some of these new pots are also finding their way into my paintings.
"Defined by the edges of the canvas, the spaces that surround the objects in my paintings are as important as the shapes of the objects themselves. These paintings are from the Autumn and Winter months, when a more direct light enters my home, offering endless moments of quiet and calm." Samantha Dennison 2021
