Here With Me is a contemporary oil painting by Claire Podesta. The light tones in this work coupled with Podesta’s free use of line gives this semi-abstract painting a calming feel.
My paintings are abstract works in oils or acrylics on canvas and paper. They are multi-layered and textural with bold brush strokes. My focus is on the process of making a painting, which is a meditative intuitive experience where the outcome is often unexpected. The coasts of Britain, the southern Mediterranean and the landscapes of the Chiltern Hills often provide my inspiration. Turner – described by John Ruskin as ‘the father of modern art’ – is a huge influence on my work and I can spend a whole day immersed in the Turner collection at Tate Britain.
Originally from Cambridgeshire and Hong Kong, I now live near Oxford, where I practice from my studio. I received a BA (Hons) degree in Graphic Design at De Montfort University, following which I worked as graphic designer and ran a furniture design business with my husband whilst raising a family.
