Oil on paper

Collection of the artist

Fruit and Vegetable Stand Church Street East, painted by Nancy Valentine in 1970, and Walled Garden at Yellow House, originally painted by Christina Hutchings in 1976, share a unique consideration for colour, which sees sweeps of tangerine, cerise and emerald grounded with quadrants of white. In both works, bold gestural brushstrokes create a textural abstraction of the landscape, bordered by clean graphic lines.

Hutchings’ piece, which is the earliest example of her work in the exhibition, captures the walled back garden of the house that she shared with her mother in the 1970s, during the time in which both these pieces were painted.

The artist, who often revisits and reworks pieces repeatedly, recently re-investigated her early work, which can be seen in the crisp lines of the chimney and the addition of collage elements.
