Rebecca Pymar - Fine Artist.

 
 

I work from my studio in Norwich painting scenes of architectural significance. Having lived in East Anglia for most of my life my work has a Suffolk/Norfolk emphasis. I often produce work of iconic architectural and coastal scenes in the area; I choose to work with acrylic paints because of their vibrant, sleek finish.

When working out a composition I pay great attention to how perspective is achieved. The relationship between the architecture and the landscape it resides in is important to consider. Vanishing points, horizons, tides, slopes, hills and other imagery are all specifically placed to ensure the composition feels balanced and correct.

I use long clean lines to create sweepings perspectives. I want the paintings to feel intimate yet vast, as if you were standing in front of the building(s) yourself.

I work in a graphic style which echoes back to the notions of 1920s/ 30s Art deco travel posters. This helps the paintings feel familiar, cheerful, warming and nostalgic. Each place evokes such different memories for every individual.

I use bold, block colours to offer a unique take on the architecture many of us will find so familiar. Colours are chosen to create striking, yet balanced pieces.

I graduated from Loughborough University with a degree in Fine Art in 2011.
