Biography

Based in Cheltenham, Plum has recently graduated with a BA (Hons) in Painting & Drawing from the University of Gloucestershire.   As an undergraduate she won the prestigious Grant Thornton Travel Award and travelled to Chicago.  Her striking paintings on panel demonstrate her unique style of representing real places in a subtle, layered manner verging on abstraction.  Using photography as a starting point, she looks for composition, form and juxtaposition of colour.  Additional influences are the written word: both the form of letters and their meaning.    She says of her work: “Work is often a delicate balance between chance and control.  One aim is to disguise in an appearance where things are hidden beneath the surface both physically and metaphorically.”


Artist Statement

A starting point for a painting is often an experience of place. The work and its meaning evolves in the studio through the action of distillation and translation. Process and chance are a fundamental part of the process as well as utilising the often slow, indirect and multi-layered nature of memory. The work is trying to re...member something, perhaps through the freezing of time, to reveal something new about a subject as well as attempting to capture its essence or illusory nature. "I can only note that the past is beautiful because one never realises an emotion at the time. It expands later, and thus we don't have complete emotions about the present, only about the past"...Virginia Woolf"To paint not the thing but the effect it produces"...Mallarme
