Dreaming of Scotland - Contemporary Landscape Painting by Victoria Orr Ewing


Studio Collection - New Paintings

Studio Collection paintings is a collection of original paintings available direct from Victoria's studio. 

Studio Collections -  Paintings, is an ever-changing collection of work. Some are experimental pieces, attempting to push my work down new avenues. Some are pieces that I didn’t finish in time for the approaching show and having finished them, I would like them to be seen. Others are paintings I was compelled to paint that did not seem relevant to the theme of the exhibition.

Having had three solo exhibitions in the past 3 years, I am now excited to have some time to experiment with new ways of responding to the landscape, and answer to my passion for wild, unspoiled places. I have become  interested in abstracting the landscape further and focusing on the psychological response to the experience of being in a place, where the detail of landscape is left more to the viewers interpretation.

Painting is a curious calling, it can be a dispiriting occupation. Paul Cézanne said “I could paint for a hundred years, a thousand years without stopping and I would still feel as though I knew nothing”. Perhaps that is why it is so absorbing. There is always more to learn and different paths of expression to explore. I find it intriguing the way paint can express the inexplicable. I have been a painter for 40 years and I have tried not to have a formula with my work, always attempting to take the next step in my creative journey to find the most unique part of myself to express what I feel about life, the world and its nature.

I will be in my studio or, when time allows, travelling to wild places in my new mobile studio camper van.  If you’d like to arrange a private view at my studio near Tetbury, Gloucestershire, I’d love to hear from you.
