Paintings of Europe
During 2012, Angela embarked upon her European Series, which initially focuses on the unique diversity of France. Her attention then progressed to other European countries. As Angela describes, “… it is a challenge for any artist to adapt and evolve their style to tackle a wider range of subjects. This project has enabled me to expand my repertoire as a painter, and reveal previously unseen aspects of my artistic output”
In contrast to the architectural drama of her New York Series, this body of work will see her capture the mood of French villages, the wine-growing regions, and the rural and urban environments of a beautiful country. Having been compared to Edward Hopper in her previous work, the European Series exposes other points of reference, such as Vincent van Gogh, who was a big inspiration for Angela in her formative years.
