Painting is silent poetry, and poetry is painting that speaks. Simonides

Irene Belknap

Irene Belknap

In my work there can be no final "this means that." It is my belief that which sustains in painting is the evocative; that which calls to mind both the artist and the viewer. My aim is to evoke a sense of the unknown where final meaning is withheld, thus the mind is incited to allow a journey beyond ourselves toward that which we sense but cannot explain; that which we know but cannot prove.

German born Irene Belknap received a BA degree in History of Art and an MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute. “Painting is like poetry,” says Belknap, “it allows for simultaneity of meaning.” Entanglements is a giclée print limited edition of 150 signed and numbered by the artist, available on paper or canvas.

'The ambiguity of identity' is a theme that threads through the current works from this imaginative and highly stylized artist. Rosalind cites Renaissance, Tudor and Jacobean portraiture as a significant influence, while her immaculate panels are clearly contemporary with a refreshing clarity and palette.

In 2006 Rosalind gained the approval of The Globe Theatre to observe backstage, rehearsal and performance; thus she has been able to satisfy her current artistic requirements as the Shakespearean references form the core of her new collection.

Rosalind Hudson gained a BA (Hons) Visual Arts in 1990 and in 2008 a MA Fine Fine Art. For some years she taught and lectured art and design before working exclusively as a professional artist. Rosalind has been invited by The National Trust to exhibit a new collection of paintings in the highly appropriate location of The Long gallery in Blickling Hall, Norfolk. This exhibition is scheduled for the summer of 2010
