Artworks by Vicki Carruthers

Painting and sculpture challenge me to think beyond what I can see and to find and express the essence of a subject.

In my paintings I want to capture this through line and colour, without full detail, and my work has become more abstract. In any subject I look for the underlying movement and strength before applying the surface qualities, but I particularly like painting landscapes. My sculptures are also abstract, and in them I also seek to express form and movement.

Much of my inspiration has come from the west coast Raglan landscape, and more recently from visits to South Island high country; each time I see or experience something in the hills or sea that I didn't see the time before and the challenge is to express this.
