‘A Natural Smile’ is an original painting by Roberta Tetzner. My garden was the inspiration here…. nature in all its bounty with all the assortment of lovely flowers and leaves. A beautiful meditation, giving hope and joy. This charming small piece is full of pinks and purples and other colours. It has a range of marks, texture and collage to give it variety, individuality and a sense of abundance and joy. The edges are painted in white and a pale ochre and the painting has been varnished to protect it from dust.
My aim is to create works of art that allow personal interpretation and that through their imagery highlight and represent some of the beauty of the landscape and our experiences within it. My surroundings (South Oxfordshire at present) are the starting point for most of my work and I draw from both the macro and the micro images of the landscape: the map-like, large-scale images of a particular piece of land, through to the detailed images of a garden layout or a particular plant. My own garden has recently greatly influenced my work as well as the Thames, on which I have occasionally rowed. The influence of colour on emotion and mood also plays a strong role in my painting. Roberta Tetzner works in the UK using her surroundings and travels as inspiration for her art. With an MA Degree, she has taught Art and Design at college level for many years, and has exhibited at various exhibitions both in the UK and abroad. Her work can be found in collections in the UK, The Netherlands, France, Germany, Sweden, Switzerland and Spain.
