‘Holiday Memory 4’ is an original contemporary impressionist landscape painting by Roberta Tetzner. This original abstract water painting recalls a wonderful memory. Do you remember a lovely holiday by the water? Feeling the breeze, the sun on the water, relaxation and …. Joy. That is the inspiration for this piece. Nature in all its bounty was the inspiration for this painting. A meditation, giving hope and joy. This expressionistic piece is full of blues, greens and other colours to lift the spirits. It has a range of marks, texture and collage to give it variety, individuality and a sense of playful joy. The painting has been lightly varnished to protect it from dust. It is signed on the front and back.
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.
