Flashes of brilliant yellows and navy-blue dance across the lower half of the picture plane of 'Release The Summer Clouds' building a convincing scene of movement. With the insertion of an overcast white to depict the sky, the tempestuous clouds bleed into the land below, each aspect of the hills being affected by the squalls. Saturated with movement and energy, this artwork will enliven any interior.


Through close observation of textures discovered within dilapidated barns, ancient hedgerows, to wild grasses, streams and soil, Durrant records these elements within her sketchbook prior to developing them into larger pieces on either board or canvas. Creating multiple layers using acrylic paint, graphite, ink and collage, each of the artist’s paintings builds in a similar way to the ever-growing, ever-evolving pattern of nature.


Upon studying Textile Design for her BA and MA, Durrant is well versed in the art of – quite literally – weaving through myriad natural materials, evoking her appreciation for our environment within her body of work. In Durrant’s words, nature holds the “immense power to heal, to stimulate our senses, and enhance our moods.”
