Colour Breath Voile

Hermione Carline, 2019             

Oil on board

W30 x H30 x D4 cm

This painting is part of Hermione's Graphic Garden series in which she explores the juxtaposition of geometric and abstract shapes derived from her interest in architecture, together with the organic shape of a flower. The flower itself is static and appears like a fixed stain glass window, through which the composition of colours and shapes can be observed emerging and receding, constantly moving and changing. Like doorways and windows leading the eye to spaces beyond, the flower acts as an anchor creating a balance between these two contradictory forces. The title alludes to Hermione's love of fabric that dates back to her years as a textile designer. The hard, unyielding surface of the wood acts as a counterbalance to the feeling of fragility and delicacy of voile.

Hermione CarlineArtist: Hermione Carline

Hermione Carline is a mixed media artist born in Hampstead to a family of artists, the Carlines and Spencers. Exploring themes of light and shadow, translucence and opacity through her paintings, drawings and prints, she imbues her work with an immersive and atmospheric quality creating pieces that are often abstract but firmly rooted in the material world.

Carline studied painting at Camberwell School of Art followed by an MA in textiles at the Royal College of Art. She then worked as a textile designer, co-founding the design studio, The Collection, where her clients included Pierre Cardin, Christian Dior and Ralph Lauren. Returning to fine art more recently, much of her current work has been informed by her earlier experiences in design and interiors

She has shown regularly in group shows with Gallery Elena Shchukina, Mayfair, with The accessible Art Fair, The Museum of Modern Art, Brussels and is a regular exhibitor with The Other Art Fair.
