Alison Tyldesley studied Fine Art in Exeter and until recently she lived, worked and painted in Sheffield. She has now moved to West Sussex very close to the sea and has a studio in a listed building.
“My work arises from a love of landscape both the rugged contours of the north and the open skies, dramatic seas and chalk lands of the south coast. I am inspired by the drama of landscape including rapidly changing weather, light and colour. I aim to capture this drama – particularly light on the horizon, wild skies and seas, receding hills and textured foregrounds.
The process of painting is very important to me, and I take pleasure in the surface and luminosity of paint itself. My paintings emerge over several weeks, as I layer paint to create texture, movement, light effects and tone. I draw on memory and imagination as well as referring to the sketches I make as I walk the landscape. Back in my studio, I paint vigorously and energetically using cloths, knives and fingers as well as brushes. I work on several paintings simultaneously and I spend considerable time studying each one and reworking and re-layering.”
The artist exhibits her work across the UK. She exhibited with Linda Blackstone for the first time at AAF Autumn Edition in Battersea Park, London in Autumn 2016.
