New Artist Spotlight: Maria Pierides
We're excited to welcome artist Maria Pierides to ART5 Gallery!
In Maria’s paintings, she renders in colour the stories of the physical and emotional landscapes that formed her experience of being born in Greece and then growing up in England and Cyprus and now living and working in Wales.
The actual process of her painting relates to this theme, as she uses mixed media, building up and scraping back areas of paint to capture the atmosphere, mass, and light of the landscapes she is aiming to depict .
Having recently moved to Wales, with its beautiful and vast landscapes, and living within earshot of a running stream, Maria continues to render in her work her surrounding environment, along with aspects of personal history, experience, and imagination, poetry and myth. New directions involve collaborations with artists across the artistic spectrum, initiating new ways of thinking about and creating art.
